Douglas Coupland is a writer who always seems to have his finger on the pulse. The media call it capturing the zeitgeist (he’s probably sick of hearing that word). So his new book is out simply called ‘jPod’. I really wonder how much of it is accident or contrived at this point, but I’ll give him the benefit of the doubt and order a copy.
I like his writing and have read most of his books. If I get the urge I’ll give you my thoughts on it post-read, but for now you can find out more on the official book site, a clever pastiche in the form of a desktop. Also related is an interview with the author on Bloomsbury.
