When Andy arrived on Monday, he happened to mention that he carried with him a highly valued commodity. Douglas Coupland’s latest novel was released in the UK in August, but is not set to reach these shores until January ’05.

Needless to say, Andy was kind enough to leave the book here while he ventured over to Chicago for the night. And having nothing more to do this week than read for an afternoon, I pulled my laptop over to the sofa (in case anyone thought of anything else I should be working on) and read.

As with any Coupland, there’s plenty to say about the book. His characteristic traits are all firmly in place, but his work has yet to become staid in these eyes. I’m still processing, and am looking forward to getting a chance to read through again, more carefully, when I either get round to ordering it from amazon UK or when the US release finally arrives. In short, he’s done it again.
