Your Topic Your Price (Santa Barbara)

Anonymous asked: Chuck, any advice/ jaded anecdotes for a working class English 18 year old kid going to Oxford and wanting to have a career in writing? I must choose my wording carefully as I understand that the only way to become a writer is to write. However, I am going to read for a degree in Philosophy and Comparative Theology. Also, does your surname piss you off at book signings? I must know.


Answer:

chuckpalahniuk:

Please study sociology and anthropology, particularly Victor Turner and his ideas about liminal and limnoid events.  Almost all my work depicts limnoid events —the seeds of future culture.  Study how various religions occasionally invert the power hierarchy.  This is the laboratory wherein the future society is created.
