SF – Adjustment Day Signing

Green Apple Books welcomes author Chuck Palahniuk on Friday, May 4th at noon for a signing of his most recent book Adjustment Day.

Please note that Chuck will not be reading at this event, and that admission to this event will be the cost of a book on or before day of the signing. Chuck will happily sign two additional items for fans of his, which may include memorabilia or an additional book. For any and all other questions concerning this event please give us a call at 415-387-2272.

In this ingeniously comic work, the author’s first novel in four years, Chuck Palahniuk 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 the new, disunited states. In this mind-blowing novel, Palahniuk—an equal-opportunity offender—fearlessly makes real the logical conclusion of every separatist fantasy, alternative fact, and conspiracy theory lurking in the American psyche.

Chuck Palahniuk is the best-selling author of more than seventeen fictional works, including Fight Club, Invisible Monsters, Survivor, Choke, Lullaby, Diary, Haunted, Rant, Pygmy, Tell-All, Damned, Doomed, Beautiful You, and, most recently, Make Something Up. He lives in the Pacific Northwest.
