generation x

I finished reading this today. It's a light, easy, fun read so I'd definitely recommend it.

It's about escapism, denial, modernism, consumerism and anti-consumerism, materialism and anti-materialism, life and a reluctance to grow up and face life's responsibilities.

  1. Good book, must re-read someday.
    Personally, Girlfriend in Coma, Hey Nostradamus and Eleanor Rigby are unmissable Coupland.

    Coupland.com is often quirky fun too.

  2. I'm a big fan of his writing too. Though I have to admit circumstances meant I got drwan away from gen x halfway through, and had to give it back to Graeme by the time I'd got round to starting again. I'll get there eventually, cos what I read was *very engaging.
