Fight Club Chapter 21

By Chuck Palahniuk

Chapter 21

  • Two things happen in this chapter. One, not so big; one, absolutely game changing.
  • (1) Flying around the country for his job, our narrator is noticing a fight club in every city. Not only that, but all the people there seem to know him. Weird.
  • (2) During a phone conversation with Marla, our narrator asks her the question we've all been wondering. "I ask Marla what my name is."
  • (21.83) In case you're one of the seven people in the world who hasn't figured it out yet, Marla says, "'Tyler Durden'" (21.85).
  • Hey, this was pretty shocking back in the late nineties.
