James McBride “Some things in this world just ain't meant to be, not in the times we want ’em to, and the heart has to hold it in this world as a remembrance, a promise for the world that's to come. There's a prize at the end of all of it, but still, that’s a heavy load to bear.” (1)

Fleeing his violent master at the side of abolitionist John Brown at the height of the slavery debate in Kansas Territory, Henry pretends to be a girl to hide his identity throughout the raid on Harpers Ferry in 1859. (博客來)

Chuck Palahniuk One of the lesser-known aspects of this cult novel/film is that the major financial sector they are attempting to compromise is actually based on Wilmington, Delaware. The book, which differs slightly from the movie, follows an imsomniac narrator who meets a mysterious man who invites him into the alluring but destructive world of Fight Clubs and extremist, anti-consumerist actions. (2)

This 1996 novel by Chuck Palahniuk spawned both a cult-classic movie and the infamous quote: “The first rule of Fight Club is: You don't talk about Fight Club.” It tells the story of an anonymous narrator who is battling insomnia when he meets another young man, Tyler Durden. The two start a bare-knuckle “fight club” as a form of psychotherapy, which leads to an awakening—as well as acts of civil disobedience and violence—in the narrator's life. (3)

本書描寫一個看著電視機長大,接受高等教育,找到一份好工作,有自己一間房子的三十幾歲男人。
三十歲之後的人生是什麼呢?去結婚,生小孩才是正軌?他三十老幾,終於明白自己不會成為電視裡的明星與搖滾巨星,內心空虛到把郵購目錄當成色情錄影帶,有著最聰明的腦袋,做著最普通的工作,內心異常哀傷:原來自己不是一片漂亮而獨特的雪花,只是一種會腐敗的有機組織,一團堆肥。
他選擇了「鬥陣俱樂部」,尋找下一個成長儀式,挑起最麻痹的神經,給自己最挑釁的一擊!(博客來)
