Adjustment Day: A Novel

Author
Chuck Palahniuk 
Summary
The author of Fight Club takes America beyond our darkest dreams in this timely satire.<br /><br />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.<br /><br />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.<br /><br />Into this dyspeptic time a blue-black book is launched carrying such wisdom as:<br /><br />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.<br /><br />The weak want you to forgo your destiny just as they’ve shirked theirs.<br /><br />A smile is your best bulletproof vest.<br /><br />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.
