Douglas Coupland’s latest

I got Douglas Coupland’s latest, Hey Nostrodamus yesterday and finished it today. It’s fantastic. I’ve read most of Douglas Coupland’s stuff, and I think this is is best book in a long time. It’s written in several different voices, each completely believable. It’s moving, it’s shocking, it’s a slice-of-life that doesn’t resolve everything but is somehow much more satisfying. Plot is not a conceit as in the last few books, but the stories clip along in a really engrossing fashion.

I joked earlier today that it’s head and shoulders above Shampoo Planet. Ha!
