Chuck Palahniuk's Story, 'ROMANCE,' To Have Its World Film Premiere At The Raindance Film Festival

Chuck Palahniuk's Story, 'ROMANCE,' To Have Its World Film Premiere At The Raindance Film Festival

If you saw Chuck on tour recently, then you heard him read from one of his best short stories to date... 'Romance.'  'Romance' is a easily one of my favorite stories Chuck has ever written.  I won't spoil the surprise of the story, but let's just say it's a true romantic comedy, in only the most twisted and fucked up way Chuck could tell it.

Last year, Andy Mingo, a filmmaker out of the Pacific Northwest who also happens to be Lidia Yuknavitch's husband, wrote and directed an adaptation of this wonderful story, and it's now set to have its world premiere in London at the 2012 Raindance Film Festival on October 2nd. If you plan on attending, not only will you see the film, but you'll get to see Chuck do a Q&A / reading and possibly qualify to be one of a dozen people who attend an intimate dinner with Chuck at a prestigious location in Leicester Square.

Based on the story by Chuck Palahniuk that appeared in the 2011 issue of Playboy magazine, 'Romance' will do its world premiere at the 2012 Raindance Film Festival in London on October 2nd. This screening will be followed by a Q&A session and a reading of his choice by Chuck Palahniuk. The event will also be attended by the film’s director, Andy Mingo.

After the screening/reading join Chuck in an intimate dinner with a dozen other people at a prestigious location in Leicester Square.

Tickets to the dinner are available now on a silent auction basis through the IFT. The proceeds will be used to fund its work in bringing filmmaking skills to disadvantaged people.

If you've ever been to Portland, OR and not visited Powell's City of Books, you have done yourself a great disservice.  Powell's is easily considered one of the greatest bookstores in North America and, like many authors, it just so happens to be one of Chuck Palahniuk's favorites.  Therefore, Chuck has agreed to not only stop by for their upcoming 41st birthday event this Saturday, but will be bringing some goodies to give away and sign.

Here are the details, straight from Chuck's mouth:

The 'Invisible Monsters Remix' Is Now Out!

'Invisible Monsters Remix' by Chuck Palahniuk

Rejoice! A book that's been over ten years in the making is finally out. In 1999, Chuck released Invisible Monsters as his third novel. Though as some fans know by now, this book was actually a book he wrote many years earlier. The original publishers weren't happy overall with the story of Brandy Alexander, Shannon and friends, and Chuck, feeling sort of daring decided, rather than tone things down with his next book, he'd ratchet them up, and thus came Fight Club, which then became his first published novel. 

When Invisible Monsters was released in 1999, Chuck didn't want fans to have to pay hardcover prices for a book he wrote many years earlier, so WW Norton themselves, did something daring and released the book directly to trade paperback format. No hardcover was ever released of the original book.

But then something cool happened: Invisbie Monsters went onto become one of Chuck's most beloved books. A true fan favorite. In fact, love of this book caused me to help spearhead a campaign in the early 2000s to have it released in hardcover.  Now, almost ten years later, Norton made it happen. But this isn't just a hardcover version of the book. Here's more from the publishers:

"Injected with new material and special design elements, Invisible MonstersRemix fulfills Chuck Palahniuk's original vision for his 1999 novel, turning a daring satire on beauty and the fashion industry into an even more wildly unique reading experience. Laced in are new chapters of memoir and further scenes with the book's characters. Readers will jump between chapters, reread the book to understand the dissolve between fiction and fact, and decipher the playful book design."

Chuck calls it the Criterion Collection version of Invisible Monsters, and it's out now.
