Modern fictionPaperback edition of the latest novel from the author of Fight Club and Choke. Features a diminutive undercover agent sent to the US to bring the country to its knees. 'Brilliant... It has moments of poetry.' Daily Telegraph
People pass the word only to those they trust most: Adjustment Day is coming. They've been reading a mysterious blue-black book and memorising its directives. They are ready for the reckoning. In this ingeniously comic work, Chuck Palahniuk's first novel in four years, he 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 a new, disunited states. In this mind-blowing novel, Palahniuk fearlessly makes real the logical conclusion of every separatist fantasy, alternative fact, and conspiracy theory lurking in the American psyche.
Modern fictionThe provocative and mind-bending new novel from the author of Fight Club and Haunted, now in paperback. Expect hilarity, horror and blazing insight into the desperate and surreal contemporary human condition as only Palahniuk can deliver it. A bona fide cult hero, with sales figures to prove it. 'Rant is fast and true, savagely clear sighted and intelligent, a luxury to read, and so funny that your facial muscles soon tire...' Guardian
