I first photographed Chuck Palahniuk a decade ago as the Fight Club frenzy simmered and enthusiasm for his new book Choke swelled. He was hanging out in the aisle at Powell’s signing random copies of his own books.
With more than a dozen books to his name now, he has a huge following. Just before we met at an historic cemetery in Portland, Palahniuk had spent several days in a warehouse signing thousands of copies of Damned as he prepared to head out on a long book tour.
The Minneapolis Star Tribune featured Palahniuk in their Talking Volumes series. You can read that story here.
