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.
Chuck Palahniuk est né en 1962. Il est l'auteur de neuf romans, parmi lesquels Fight Club (Gallimard, 1999) et Berceuse (Gallimard, 2004). Après Snuff (2011), Damnés est son deuxième livre à paraître chez Sonatine Éditions.
