The brilliant new novel from the bestselling cult author of them all.
Susan and John need to disappear – Susan and John need to find each other.
Meet Susan Colgate – Miss Wyoming. Winner of a hundred teen pageants, child star of Meet the Blooms (America’s favourite family), owner of a hideously pushy mother… and now reduced to small, brainless parts in small, brainless movies. Oh, and sole survivor of Flight 802. If she were to walk away from the wreckage now, before the emergency crews get here, she could disappear and nobody would ever know…
Meet John Johnson – action film star (Bel Air P.I… um, Bel Air P.I. 2), occasional sado-masochist, junkie. He just died – but only for 5 minutes. All the crap he’s done to his body over the years, and it’s a flu that killed him! But while he was gone, he saw a vision of a woman’s face and realized that it was time to escape, to ditch the baggage of being horny, rich, lonely John Johnson and to lose himself. To disappear.
Wouldn’t it be nice if they were to find themselves and get together?
In many ways a reprise of Girlfriend in a Coma (60,000 copies sold in paperback in its first three months…), Miss Wyoming represents a further leap forwards into the World According to Coupland – a witty, genuinely funny look at who we are, how we can change, and how we can make a difference.
