Don’t miss Canadian artist, writer and literary superstar Douglas Coupland in conversation with CBC Radio’s Laurie Brown (The Signal). Coupland hit the worldwide stage with his 1991 novel Generation X: Tales for an Accelerated Culture, introducing terms like “McJob” and “Generation X” to the lexicon, and earning a reputation as a guru of popular culture.

A true polymath, Coupland has written twelve novels, several non-fiction books and has written and performed for the Royal Shakespeare Company in England. He has studied art and design in Canada, Italy and Japan, and in 2001 he resumed his practice as a visual artist, with exhibitions in North America, Europe and Asia. 2006 marked his first attempt to write for the screen, with the feature film Everything’s Gone Green. Since then, his visionary take on popular culture has made him fascinating reading in a New York Times blog, and jPod has made it to the small screen on CBC. His most recent novel is The Gum Thief.
