It's the story of a medical school drop out with an interesting past. Victor's mother is a serial criminal who used to be a sex hypnotists of sort. She had a strange impact on his life and he's a sex addict. He pretends to choke in resturaunts so people can feel like a hero saving him and as a result send him birthday cards and cash. He uses this money to keep his Mom in the hospital in perpetual state as a vegetable so he feels like he has power over someone or something in his life.
The prose is clean. He spent a fair amount of time doing medical research for the book and it shows. He's spouting off medical jargon in an OCD fashion throughout the book. Quick, funny read.
