Excerpt: Douglas Coupland (pronounced COPE-lund) (born December 30, 1961) is a Canadian novelist. His fiction is complemented by recognized works in design and visual art arising from his early formal training. His first novel, the 1991 international bestseller Generation X: Tales for an Accelerated Culture, popularized terms such as McJob and Generation X. He has published thirteen novels, a collection of short stories, seven non-fiction books, and a number of dramatic works and screenplays for film and television. Coupland has been described as "...possibly the most gifted exegete of North American mass culture writing today." and "one of the great satirists of consumerism". A specific feature of Coupland's novels is their synthesis of postmodern religion, Web 2.0 technology, human sexuality, and pop culture. Coupland currently lives in West Vancouver, British Columbia with his partner David Weir. He published his twelfth novel Generation A in 2009.

Coupland has been longlisted twice for the Scotiabank Giller Prize in 2006 and 2010, respectively., was a finalist for the Rogers Writers' Trust Fiction Prize in 2009, and was nominated for the BC Book/Hubert Evans Non-Fiction Prize in 2011 for Extraordinary Canadians: Marshall McLuhan.
