Synopsis

Drama. A young man, the narrator of the story as well as one of the main protagonists, is first seen attempting to kill himself. The story then moves back six months to the period during which, as a possible cure for incessant insomnia, the narrator's doctor forces him to attend regular group sessions of cancer victims in order to put his own problems into perspective. He becomes obsessed with attending more sessions and meets a woman, Marla, with whom he strikes up a friendship. At the same time the narrator makes the acquaintance of Tyler Durden, who makes soap for a living. After an evening spent at a bar, and an ensuing fight which bonds the friendship between the two men, the fight becomes a regular occurrence and escalates into an event that attracts ever-growing interest from others, who are sworn to secrecy.
