Generation X: Tales for an Accelerated Culture
From The Art and Popular Culture Encyclopedia
Generation X: Tales for an Accelerated Culture, published by St. Martin's Press in 1991, is the first novel by Douglas Coupland. The novel popularized the term Generation X, which refers to Americans and Canadians who reached adulthood in the late 1980s. It is a framed narrative, in which a group of youth exchange heartfelt stories about themselves and fantastical stories of their creation.
Coupland will release a similarly-titled Generation A in September 2009.
