Chuck Palahniuk, the author of Fight Club, takes America beyond our darkest dreams in this timely satire, Adjustment Day (W. W. Norton & Company).
People pass the word only to those they trust most: Adjustment Day is coming. They’ve been reading a mysterious blue-black book and memorizing its directives. They are ready for the reckoning.
In this ingeniously comic work, the author’s first novel in four years, Chuck Palahniuk does what he does best: skewer the absurdities in our society. Smug, geriatric politicians hatch a nasty fate for the burgeoning population of young males; working-class men dream of burying the elites; and professors propound theories that offer students only the bleakest future. When it arrives, Adjustment Day inaugurates the new, disunited states.
In this mind-blowing novel, Palahniuk—an equal-opportunity offender—fearlessly makes real the logical conclusion of every separatist fantasy, alternative fact, and conspiracy theory lurking in the American psyche.
Chuck Palahniuk is the best-selling author of more than seventeen fictional works, including Fight Club, Invisible Monsters, Survivor, Choke, Lullaby, Diary, Haunted, Rant, Pygmy, Tell-All, Damned, Doomed, Beautiful You, and, most recently, Make Something Up. He lives in the Pacific Northwest.
