Format: Paperback
When I first read Generation X I was 18, living in a small town in the midlands in England. Coupland wrote about the things i cared about which was not much. Everything seemed to be falling away. A whole world order was terraforming in front of us on TV and it was as remote as the remotest remote control. Reading Coupland back then taught me that your generation will be superseded a million times. That nine years on with a haircut and a job you'll say things you'd have hated yourself for. And remember those friends? Where are they now. So it is good, almost as a history now, but he's wrote infinitely better stuff, from the surface of shampoo planet, to the aching brillance of girlfriend in a comma- the themes remain you are destined to become that which you think you will never be

I had read Shampoo Planet prior to this, which is a great book. But something about Generation X grabbed me totally, years on I still read it regularly and it still touches me. The characters are perfect. Much of the chapters could stand up on their own as excellent short stories and all put together it is wonderful and charming.

This is an essential read for anyone writing contemporary fiction or non-fiction. It is worth it just for the the footnotes, that are in the margins, 'McJob' 'fattening pen' etc. I have stolen a few of the expressions for my own writing, as have many others. I bought this for my son, buy it and you will not be disappointed.
