Where has Mr Coupland been all my life with his wit and sarcasm and observational humour?
Generation A is the first book I have read by Mr Coupland and I now plan to stalk his back catagalogue (er ... never mind).
Anyway. Generation A is set in the very near future, and the bees have disappeared. At least - that's what everybody thinks until five different people in apparently random parts of the world - are stung.
Then things get a little strange.
Um. Okay. I read this book a few weeks ago and the details are a little hazy, but it's awesome. And funny. And witty. And a Satirical Tome on Our Times. And one of the five is from New Zealand.
You all should read it.
