Chuck Palahniuk: best books

Chuck Palahniuk is the best-selling author of Fight Club, Choke, Invisible Monsters, and other books.

He named a best books list for The Week. One title on the list:
Honored Guest by Joy Williams (Vintage, $14).

Don’t let the praise by highbrow critics scare you away from this 2004 story collection. We’re so much more likely to feel sympathy for an animal than for another person, thus the best fiction uses animals to define truly humane behavior. No one does this better than Joy Williams.
Read about another book on Palahniuk's list.
