Together they will address some of the key issues found in one of his most controversial works,”edit day(Pete Random Litatura).
Regarded as one of the most innovative, provocative and visionary writers today, Chuck Palahniuk has achieved international recognition for his novel Fight Club, in which the important struggles of the individual converge in contemporary societies. Today he returns with a new story in which he openly reveals the strange reality that could happen if separatist fantasies and conspiracy theories were to proliferate in American psychological ports.
“Adaptation Day” is a fascinating satire of American society that fuels reflection on a present of unprecedented social upheaval, a literary analysis of our time arguing for a complex future scenario in which politics, the Internet, and power are intertwined to condense in its pages a picture of the time we live in and the future we can hope for.
