With Generation X, Douglas Coupland didn't just write a book that sold wildly in North America and around the world. He changed the way people viewed an entire generation, while coining such unforgettable terms as "McJob" and "poverty jet set." The novel serves up angst with a generous helping of wit, and is both entertaining and illuminating.
Andy, Dag and Claire have cut themselves loose from their hometowns and live in adjacent cottages in Palm Springs, California. They're connected by their friendship and by the feeling that the world is passing them by, but that dropping out is still the only sensible solution.
