The Choke Sofie Laguna Born in breech position, Justine feels she has been failing to understand the world from infancy. Abandoned by her mother and visited rarely by her unstable father whom she idolises, Justine is in the sole care of her grandfather – a troubled World War II veteran of the Burma Railway, who suffers with post-traumatic stress disorder and struggles to care for his own needs, let alone those of a young child. Told from the innocent perspective of a child, The Choke is an unflinching portrayal of the impact of poverty, neglect and male violence on an impressionable young girl as she makes her way in adulthood.
