Ele sai para comprar uma cenoura e lubrificante. Para conduzir uma pesquisa particular. Todos os clientes esperando na fila, observando. Todos vendo a grande noite que ele preparou. E vaselina. Como se ele fosse para casa enfiar um bolo de cenoura no rabo.

He entered the workforce as a journalist for a local Portland newspaper, but soon grew tired of the job. He then gained employment as a diesel mechanic, spending his days repairing trucks and writing technical manuals.
It was during this time that Chuck experienced much of what would become fodder for his early work, including working as an escort for terminally ill hospice patients and becoming a member of the notorious Cacophony Society.
Within months, Gerry Howard then editor at WW Norton convinced the higher-ups to take a chance on the fledgling writer, and Chuck soon had a book deal with a major publisher. Due to this success, Chuck was given free reign, creatively. All of his novels thereafter have had similar success. A major theme of the book is power, and Chuck has gone on record as saying it was inspired by sitting in the court room, in judgment of the man who killed his father. That man was found guilty and sentenced to death in With the trial behind him, Chuck threw himself into his work.
The three-day event gave fans unprecedented access to the author and his work, and was presided over by Chuck himself. Not one to revel in the spotlight, Chuck selflessly used this forum to promote the art of storytelling, and to encourage a generation of young readers to evolve into writers.
The entire affair was thoroughly documented by a crew from ChuckPalahniuk. It was also around this time that Chuck publicly came out as homosexual. For a long time it was assumed that Chuck was married, and some members of the press even perpetuated the myth that he had a wife, but he set the record straight via an audio message posted on ChuckPalahniuk.
To this day, he still attends a weekly workshop with close friends and writers such as Lidia Yuknavitch, Monica Drake, Chelsea Cain and Suzy Vitello, and they are the first people to read anything he writes.
He feels every one of his novels should be able to be condensed into a short story and still work. He says that research is his favorite part of the writing process and is the fuel that drives his novels.
He has been known to consume entire books and distil that information into a single descriptive line. He writes in public, spending hours people-watching as he does. But it is better to give than to receive.
Chuck has used his experience and success to help his fellow writers. Photo by John Gress Chuck also enjoys giving back to his fans, and teaching the art of storytelling has been an important part of that. In , Chuck began submitting essays to ChuckPalahniuk. Then, in , Chuck increased his involvement by committing to read and review a selection of fan-written stories each month. He would then provide detailed feedback and criticism to aid in the revision process.
When he is not on tour, Chuck is constantly writing.
Guts – Chuck Palahniuk
At that time, his father, Fred Palahniuk, had started dating a woman named Donna Fontaine, whom he had met through a personal ad under the title " Kismet ". Her former boyfriend, Dale Shackelford, had previously been imprisoned for sexual abuse, and had vowed to kill Fontaine as soon as he was released from prison. In the spring of , Shackelford was found guilty for two counts of murder in the first degree and sentenced to death. In the wake of these events, Palahniuk began working on the novel Lullaby. He has stated that he wrote the novel to help him cope with having participated in the decision to have Shackelford receive the death sentence. The story begins with the author telling his listeners to inhale deeply and that "this story should last about as long as you can hold your breath. On his tour to promote Stranger than Fiction: True Stories during the summer of , he read "Guts" to audiences again, bringing the total number of fainters up to 53 and later up to 60 while on tour to promote the softcover edition of Diary.
