Choke Summary


Choke by Chuck Palahniuk

Victor Mancini has devised a complicated scam to pay for his mother's hospital care: pretend to be choking on a piece of food in a restaurant and the person who 'saves you' will feel responsible for you for the rest of their lives. Multiply that a couple of hundred times and you generate a healthy flow of cheques, week in, week out. Victor also works at a theme park with a motley group of losers, cruises sex addiction groups for action, and visits his mother, whose Alzheimer's disease now hides what may be the startling truth about his parentage.

Choke Reviews


"A wonderful writer with a raw take on modern woes" * The Face *
"A raw and vital book, punctuated with outrageous, off-the-wall moments" * New York Times *
"Mining a dark vein opened by Bret Easton Ellis and George Saunders, Palahniuk specialises in producing nightmarish visions of American society that manage to be both repugnant and hilarious-the reckless brilliance of his imagination keeps you turning the pages" * Literary Review *
