I know a book by Chuck Palahniuk is going to be unusual. Generally, his works are also entertaining. I loved Rant, Choke, and Pygmy, but this one was just weird, disjointed, and boring. Most of it was blatently insipid. I'm not sure what audience Palahniuk was trying to reach but there was a lot of purile, bathroom "humor" attempted. Many story threads are left dangling and the whole experience, other than the charming reader, was, for me, disappointing.
His early days and his unlikely rise to stardom. Lucky indeed.
His memories of the movies I loved as a child, especially Chitty Chitty Bang Bang (he hated it)
Burt, the chimneysweep, is a close second to Rob Petrie.
Many, but his meetings and friendships with the old silent comedians, Stan Laurel and Buster Keaton.
