Generation X: Tales for an Accelerated Culture by Douglas Coupland

Buy Generation X: Tales for an Accelerated Culture by Douglas CouplandUnlike Coupland’s later works, Generation X, doesn’t have a steadily more ridiculous than soap storyline that sometimes threatens to undermine it all. So in some ways it’s a more mature read. While there are plenty of works dealing with the angst of transition to adulthood, this is one of the first to recognise that trauma in the 30-somethings and reading now, you can see it anticipates much of the thinking that informs contemporary literature today.
