Generation X

(Fiction; St. Martin’s Griffin, 1991)

Generation X: Tales for an Accelerated Culture is a road map for the children of the mid-1960s through the ’70s, a generation born in the shadow of their baby boomer parents.

And for younger, post–Generation X readers, Coupland’s novel has become a cult classic for its time, not unlike how Kerouac’s On the Road and Goethe’s The Sorrows of Young Werther were for their times.
