Tonight on the program, Douglas Coupland joins George in the red chair to talk about his latest book, Worst. Person. Ever. Coupland first rose to international prominence after the publication of 1991's Generation X: Tales for an Accelerated Culture, which helped popularize the term for people born after the Baby Boomers, and his 14 novels have been translated into 36 languages. But Coupland, who attended the Emily Carr College of Art and Design, has also been exhibiting his artwork since the 1980s, and will have his first major survey exhibition at the Vancouver Art Gallery next year. His work often contains references to Pop Art and the Group of Seven, and deals with many of the same themes as his books, like technology, digital culture and Canadiana. Check out the gallery above for a look at some of his recent work.
And, of course, tune in to George Stroumboulopoulos Tonight on December 3 at 7 p.m. or 11:30 p.m. on CBC to catch Coupland in the red chair.
