Interesting profile of chuck Palahniuk, author of Fight Club, who wrote an alternative travel guide to the dark underbelly of Portland.

That’s the liminoid thing. You create a character or a social model that people want to live into. It gives them another option. It’s like when you create a phrase and you hear people using it. I can’t tell you how often I’ve heard, “The first rule of blank is you don’t talk about blank.” That’s a fantastic feeling of power. But it comes with a certain sadness… This rhetorical device I invented is going to outlive me.
