Fight Club - Chuck Palahniuk


"To warm her up, to make her laugh, I tell Marla about the woman in Dear Abby who married a handsome successful mortician and on their wedding night, he made her soak in a tub of ice water until her skin was freezing to the touch, and then he made her lie in bed completely still while he had intercourse with her cold inert body. The funny thing is this woman had done this as a newlywed, and gone on to do it for the next ten years of marriage and how she was writing to Dear Abby to ask if Abby thought it meant something."

"Marla's philosophy of life, she told me, is that she can die at any moment. The tragedy of her life is that she doesn't."
