About the Author

Douglas Coupland (pronounced KOHP-lend) (born 30 December 1961) is a Canadian writer, designer and visual artist. His first novel was the 1991 international bestseller Generation X- Tales for an Accelerated Culture. Since then, Coupland has written twelve more novels, which have been published in most languages. He has written and performed for the Royal Shakespeare Company and is a columnist for the Financial Times. He is a frequent contributor to the New York Times, e-flux, Dis and Vice. In 2000, after a decade of generating web graphics, Coupland amplified his visual art production and has recently had two separate museum retrospectives- 'Everywhere Is Anywhere Is Anything Is Everything' at the Royal Vancouver Art Gallery, the Royal Ontario Museum and the Museum of Contemporary Canadian Art; and 'Bit Rot' at the Witte de With Center for Contemporary Art in Rotterdam and Villa Stuck in Munich. In 2015 and 2016, Coupland was an artist-in-residence in the Paris Google Cultural Institute.

Reviews

"Coupland adopts...an Andy Warholish mode, somewhere between mocking, lamenting, celebrating even the most troubling aspects of postmodernity." * Times Literary Supplement * "[Coupland's] new collection has its basis in that rarefied literary form, the art catalogue ... [he] is at his best when he muses on new opportunities and challenges presented by technology." * The National * "[T]he Vancouver-based tech-seer, critic, author and artist again proves himself to be one of the most entertaining and thoughtful futurologists on the planet." * The Herald * "Bit Rot is wry and wise, terrifying and hilarious, and it makes us LOL while still using "LOL" correctly." * i Paper * "Every page is full of wit, surprise and delight" * Dluxe Magazine *
