The story of three friends deals with the problems faced by the post baby boom generation and is accompanied by definitions of terms reflecting modern social trends *Author: Coupland, Douglas *Subtitle: Tales for an Accelerated Culture *Publication Date: 1991/03/15 *Binding Type: Paperback *Language: English *Depth: 0.75 *Width: 7.50 *Height: 8.50
From the Publisher:
Generation X is a field guide to and for the vast generation born in the late 1950s and the 1960s--a generation that has been erroneously labelled "postponed" and "indifferent". This is facto-fiction about a wildly accelerating subculture waiting in the corridor.
Andy, Claire and Dag (who says he's a lesbian trapped inside a man's body) are overeducated, underemployed, and in search of permanence, love and home in the California desert. The book's layout (text plus photos, illustrations and sidebars) adds to its pop-culture aura.
Author Bio
Douglas Coupland
Douglas Coupland, raised in Winnipeg, was once a sculptor, but inaugurated his career as a writer with a nonfiction book proposal about his generation; the book turned into fiction (GENERATION X, published in 1991) and became a bestseller and a cult favorite. His succeeding novels have never reached its heights; his 1994 LIFE AFTER GOD was chosen as one of the year's worst books by People magazine. Coupland, however, remains a spokesman for the generation that came of age in the 1980s, though he has said, vehemently, "I speak for myself, not for a generation. I never have." Coupland collects meteorites and letters.


"A modern-day 'Catcher in the Rye.'" - Louise Bernikow

Village Voice
"A funny, self-conscious first novel."
