Review from Amazon:
With his first work - Generation X - Douglas Coupland revealed the ambitionless twenty-something 'slacker' generation to a supposedly 'post-yuppie' America, and in doing so received much media attention. In Life After God, a disparate collection of characters grapple with the problems of loneliness, anxiety and the meaning of life in an increasingly secular society. Scattered throughout these eight short stories are the author's own illustrations. Initially irritating childlike scribbles, these slowly merge with the accompanying text to create a full yet fractured impression of a frazzled contemporary America. (Kirkus UK)

Product Description
His fans favourite book. YOU ARE THE FIRST GENERATION RAISED WITHOUT RELIGION What happens if we are raised without religion or beliefs? As we grow older, the beauty and disenchantments of the world temper our souls. We all have spiritual impulses, yet where do these impulses flow in a world of commodities and consumerism? LIFE AFTER GOD is a compellingly innovative collection of stories responding to these themes. Douglas Coupland takes us into worlds we know exist but rarely see, finding rare grace amid our pre-millennium turmoil.

I'm a bit of a Coupland fan and really enjoyed this book. I somehow managed to re-read it in one day - I’m usually painfully slow at reading so I guess it says something about the book!! I really enjoyed this one but I actually believe that it's not the best that Coupland has written...it's still very different to your standard novel and I hope that the next reader enjoys it as much as I did!
