Direct Credit CardChecks
by Chuck Palahniuk.
OVERVIEW: From the master of the dark and the depraved, whose Fight Club earned him a cult following, comes a novel about Victor Mancini - a medical school dropout who believes himself to be a direct descendant of Jesus Christ (never mind the fact that he happens to be an incorrigible sex addict who pays for his ailing mothers medical bills by pretending to choke in restaurants and so reaping sympathy checks from the people who save him). Mordantly funny, taunting, and, at times, as thought-provoking as it is weird, Choke is a satiric - and unsettling - romp through our norm-driven world.
