The consequences of media saturation are the basis for an urban nightmare in Lullaby, Chuck Palahniuk’s darkly comic and often dazzling thriller. Assigned to write a series of feature articles investigating SIDS, troubled newspaper reporter Carl Streator begins to notice a pattern among the cases he encounters: each child was read the same poem prior to his or her death. His research and a tip from a necrophilic paramedic lead him to Helen Hoover Boyle, a real estate agent who sells «distressed» (demonized) homes, assured of their instant turnover. Boyle and Streator have both lost children to «crib death,» and she confirms Streator’s suspicions: the poem is an ancient lullaby or «culling song» that is lethal if spoken — or even thought — in a victim’s direction. The misanthropic Streator, now armed with a deadly and uncontrollably catchy tune, goes on a minor killing spree until he recognizes his crimes and the song’s devastating potential. Lullaby then turns into something of a road…

The concept of this Lullaby being what it is keeps you engaged from page one until you have to put it down

This was Helen Hoover Boyle. Our hero. Now dead but not dead. Here was just another day in her life. This was the life she lived before I came along. Maybe this is a love story, maybe not. It depends on how much I can believe myself.
This is about Helen Hoover Boyle. Her haunting me. The way a song stays in your head. The way you think life should be. How anything holds your attention. How your past goes with you into every day of your future.
That is. This is. It's all of it, Helen Hoover Boyle.
We're all of us haunted and haunting.

Sticks and stones may break your bones, but watch out for those damn words.
