Ideas Player One - Part 1 Oct 13, 2010 | 53:58Player One: What is To Become of Us? by Douglas Coupland. For the first time in their history, the CBC Massey Lectures is a work of fiction. In an airport lounge in the very near future, four people are marooned when a kind of apocalypse strikes. Sealed in, the four can only talk to each other, examining their lives and the meaning of love. Thick ash falls from the sky. Cell phones don't work. What is to become of us? In the tradition of Kurt Vonnegut and J.G. Ballard, Douglas Coupland locates his story and characters in an extreme situation and then pushes the implications as far as possible.
