Douglas Coupland is the international bestselling author of Generation X, and eleven other novels, including The Gum Thief, Hey Nostradamus!, All Families Are Psychotic, and Generation A, which was a finalist for the Rogers Writers'' Trust Fiction Prize. His nonfiction books include Polaroids from the Dead, Terry: The Life of Terry Fox...
