Adjustment Day

Adjustment Day

The author of Fight Club takes America beyond our darkest dreams in this timely satire.

People pass the word only to those they trust most: Adjustment Day is coming. They’ve been reading a mysterious book and memorizing its directives. They are ready for the reckoning.

Adjustment Day, the author’s first novel in four years, is an ingeniously comic work in which Chuck Palahniuk does what he does best: skewer the absurdities in our society. Smug, geriatric politicians bring the nation to the brink of a third world war in an effort to control 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 Adjustment Day arrives, it fearlessly makes real the logical conclusion of every separatist fantasy, alternative fact, and conspiracy theory lurking in the American psyche.

About Chuck Palahniuk

Written in stolen moments under truck chassis and on park benches to a soundtrack of The Downward Spiral and Pablo Honey,

    I LOVED Fight Club. Of course, I only saw the movie and didn't read the book. Totally brilliant! So, when I saw this, I thought I would be blown away and that there would be some awesome twisty stuff....

    Rounding up from a 3.5On the one hand, it's nice to have Chuck back and doing fiction. Not only that, he's doing fiction that doesn't rely on a gimmick like the last.... decade or so of his output. No...

    50 pages into this book, I was thinking, "Ah, Christ. So Mr. Palahniuk is weighing in on American politics too? Is fucking EVERYONE an expert now?"But then I read some more, and what he's doing is way...

    After first reading Fight Club in 1998 Chuck P has been one of my favorite authors. I've read all of his first eight books at least twice and most of them three or four times. Unfortunately he has bee...

    When I see the words REDUCED SODIUM printed on a label I know the contents are going to be bland and flavorless. The manufacturer might try to supplement the missing ingredient with other spices and w...

    I’ve not read much of Palahniuk’s work. In fact, I’ve only read Fight Club. So, when I got the chance to get my hands on an ARC of his new book, I didn’t hesitate. He’s a writer I’ve alway...

    I've been a big Chuck P fan for quite some time now. I even caught him live at the Triple Rock for the "Snuff" tour. His last few books haven't grabbed me like "Rant," "Lullaby" or "Survivor" did. "Ad...
