Pygmy

Pygmy

by Chuck Palahniuk (Author)

Synopsis

Agent Number 67, nicknamed Pygmy for his diminutive size, arrives in the United States from his totalitarian homeland. An 'exchange student' he is welcomed with open arms by his Midwestern host family. Simpsons-spinoffs, they introduce him into the rituals of postmodern American life, which he views with utter contempt. Along with his fellow operatives, he is planning something big, something truly, truly awful, to bring this big dumb country's fat inhabitants to their knees.

Media Reviews
The boldest book in a long while...ace -- Lauren Laverne * Grazia *
A hilarious novel...as ever, Palahniuk is interested in pushing the limits. He leaps over the line of good taste - and lands squarely on his feet * Booklist *
Brilliant... It has moments of poetry * Daily Telegraph *
Brilliantly conceived, linguistically inventive and extremely rude -- Anne McElvoy * New Statesman, Books of 2009 *
The novel abandons minimalism for a Clockwork Orange-style spin through a semi-invented language. Consequently, it's Palahniuk's most challenging book yet -- Colin Waters * The Sunday Herald *
