"Douglas Coupland continues to register the buzz of his generation with a fidelity that should shame most professional Zeitgeist chasers." -- Jay McInerney, New York Times Book Review "Coupland has at his disposal a dazzling array of tools with which to shape the emotions of his readers: the whimsy of a latter-day Jack Kerouac, the irony of a young Kurt Vonnegut, the poignancy of early John Irving." -- Bookpage quote; The self-wrought oracle of our age." -- John Fraser, Saturday Night
