Ever heard of a culling song? Itís a lullaby sung in Africa to give a painless death to the old or infirm. The lyrics of a culling song kill, whether spoken or even just thought. You can find one on page 27 of Poems and Rhymes from Around the World, an anthology that is sitting on the shelves of libraries across the country, waiting to be picked up by unsuspecting readers.

Reporter Carl Streator discovers the songís lethal nature while researching Sudden Infant Death Syndrome, and before he knows it, heís reciting the poem to anyone who bothers him. As the body count rises, Streator glimpses the potential catastrophe if someone truly malicious finds out about the song. The only answer is to find and destroy every copy of the book in the country. Accompanied by a shady real-estate agent, her Wiccan assistant, and the assistantís truly annoying ecoterrorist boyfriend, Streator begins a desperate cross-country quest to put the culling song to rest.

Written with a style and imagination that could only come from Chuck Palahniuk, Lullaby is the latest outrage from one of our most exciting writers at work today.

Chuck Palahniukís four other novels are the bestselling Fight Club, which was made into a film by director David Fincher, Survivor, Invisible Monsters, and Choke. He lives in Portland, Oregon.

  • Lullaby

    I love overstock.com but the book I purchased was recommended by a friend and turned out to horrible in my opinion. Its just an opinion and Im not upset with the webset at all. Just a poor book choice.

    • Would you recommend this to a friend? No
  • Should be a movie!

    By far and away, the most entertaining of all his books! This was much easier to follow and not nearly as "jumpy" as Fight Club or Invisible Monsters. Although graphic (much like his other books), this book story had a kind of sad elegance to it that only Chuck Palahniuk could produce.
