Reviews

"A cunning mix of advertising copy, leftist sloganeering and teen slang.... Pygmy is a dish for those who like their satire well done. And without apology." --San Francisco Chronicle "Palahniuk's twisted imagination is still in full bloom." --The Seattle Times "[A] hilarious cover-to-cover read." --The Baltimore City Paper "Inventive, hilarious, moving and deeply disturbing." --Playboy "Palahniuk is brilliant." --The Washington Post Book World "Palahniuk's novels have always been driven by black humor. . . . His minimalist, verb-heavy style propels the narratives through the many bizarre, occasionally shocking events. . . . A full portrait of an unforgettable character. Pygmy is yet another unique direction for an author who continues to challenge and intrigue readers." --The Boston Globe "A rip-roaringly exciting piece of writing, a truly graphic novel. . . . It has moments of poetry within." --The Telegraph (London) "Chuck Palahniuk is William S. Burroughs and David Foster Wallace rolled into one." --San Diego Union-Tribune "Violent, outrageous, and darkly hilarious." --National Post "Palahniuk is brilliant at juxtaposing Pygmy's insane background with the madness of contemporary Western society." --The Washington Post Book World "Give Pygmy to your kid. He'll think you're rad." --Esquire "A poignant commentary on culture clash with a sinister and violent twist. It's what one might expect if movie-violence king Quentin Tarantino had written Borat." --The London Free Press "Palahniuk . . . knows all about escalating action to a thrilling finale. More impressively, he starts to make us feel for Pygmy, and introduces a more human side to this previously impenetrable character. . . . Pretty funny." --The Independent (London) "A jarring and evocative narrative culminating in something both cruel and humane. . . . Culture clash with a Palahniuk twist." --Bookreporter "Think Faulkner writing as a demented Chinese Pinko-Commie youth with a deadly killing stroke and a near constant erection. . . . The apocalypse of the American Dream has never been so entertaining." --Death + Taxes magazine
