Adjustment Day

"Adjustment Day" by Chuck Palahniuk

“An irreverent satirical fantasy about a sudden and violent upheaval.… Think Tom Robbins channeling Jonathan Swift.” David Takami, Seattle Times

Adjustment Day is an ingenious darkly comic work in which Chuck Palahniuk does what he does best: skewer the absurdities in our society. Geriatric politicians bring the nation to the brink of a third world war to control the burgeoning population of young males, while working-class men dream of burying the elites. Adjustment Day’s arrival makes real the logical conclusion of every separatist fantasy, alternative fact, and conspiracy theory lurking in the American psyche.
