  Chuck Palahniuk at Calgary WordFestPDF files may take a moment to load

An artist’s work is indicative of the type of person who made it, so I was only mildly surprised when Chuck Palahniuk appeared in front of the audience dressed like a barefoot Dumbledore in a shiny red robe, pajamas and a bejeweled scarf, telling us that if we didn’t blow up our beach balls he would berate us.

Palahniuk’s eccentric personality and twisted sense of humour translates into bestselling transgressive fiction. He has written 13 successful novels, two books of nonfiction, as well as a bizarre collection of short fiction.
