Chuck Palahniuk: Greener Pastures

He joins me on this week’s Book Club podcast to tell me why; and to talk about how 9/11 changed literature, why he never tires of making his audience feel sick, and how he thinks David Foster Wallace might be alive today if he’d taken some time out to write a few Spider-Man comics.
