Adjustment Day – Chuck Palahniuk Release

I may not have told you this, but Chuck Palahniuk has been my favorite contemporary writer for quite a while. (I’m sorry Neil Gaiman and Stephen King!) His talent for cutting words and relevant literary satire astound me. I can’t wait to get this book!

*Crossing my fingers, NetGalley!*

From Amazon:
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.

Into this dyspeptic time a blue-black book is launched carrying such wisdom as:

Imagine there’s no God. There is no Heaven or Hell. There is only your son and his son and his son and the world you leave for them.

The weak want you to forgo your destiny just as they’ve shirked theirs.

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.

  1. Ooh! My husband is a big fan of Fight Club. I have not read any Chuck Palahniuk. I should check him out, and see if hubby might want to check him out as well. I’ve been meaning to re-watch Fight Club…as a matter of fact.

    1. I applied a while ago and still have a relatively new account with them so we’ll see. I have to own it anyway but I do prefer paperbacks so if I could get the ebook now, that’d be awesome. I don’t want to wait too long!

  2. I’ve never read any of his books – I’ve heard his books are a little cracked though, so I’d probably really enjoy them! XD
