'Fight Club' Author Chuck Palahniuk's Newest Book Promises to Offend

"Everyone will be offended" says publishers

Chuck Palahniuk, author of the iconic novel-turned-Academy-Award-nominated film Fight Club is releasing a new book in May 2018. 

 

His upcoming novel, titled Adjustment Day, will reach bookshelves on May 1, 2018. It will be published by W.W. Norton & Company, who has worked will Palahniuk before and published Fight Club, Invisible Monsters, and Survivor.

 

Though Palahniuk and his publishers have remained vague on plot details, the novel promises to be a hell of a read, according to a press release.

 

The press release goes on to say:

 

Fight Club put Palahniuk on the map as a transgressive visionary. Now, Adjustment Day blows past all previous markers for impropriety with a brilliant, hilarious, and outrageous story that is perfect for our era. Every reader, of every stripe, will find something in Adjustment Day that is as profoundly wise, funny, and affecting as it is offensive. And, make no mistake, everyone will be offended.

 

Palahniuk goes on to compare his newest novel to perhaps his most popular work, stating:

 

W.W. Norton brought my first book, Fight Club, into the world. My next book, Adjustment Day, is to Fight Club what Atlas Shrugged is to The Fountainhead—a bigger package of bold characters and norm-bashing ideas. And it's proof that W.W. Norton and I have great faith in one another. I'm pleased as punch to be working once more with such a brave, ground-breaking publisher.

 

While readers should stay tuned for additional details regarding Adjustment Day, brave fans can go ahead and pre-order the novel today.
