About the Author

DOUGLAS COUPLAND is a Canadian writer, visual artist and designer. His first novel is the 1991 international bestseller Generation X: Tales for an Accelerated Culture, still celebrated for its biting humour and cultural relevancy thirty years since initial publication. He has published fourteen novels, two collections of short stories, eight nonfiction books. He has written and performed for England's Royal Shakespeare Company, is a columnist for The Financial Times of London and a frequent contributor to The New York Times. In 2000 Coupland amplified his visual art production and has recently had two separate museum retrospectives, Everything is Anything is Anywhere is Everywhere at the Vancouver Art Gallery, The Royal Ontario Museum and the Museum of Contemporary Canadian Art, and Bit Rot at Rotterdam's Witte de With Center for Contemporary Art, and Munich's Villa Stücke. In 2015 and 2016 Coupland was artist in residence in the Paris Google Cultural Institute. In May 2018, his exhibition on ecology, Vortex, opened at the Vancouver Aquarium. Coupland is a member of the Royal Canadian Academy, an Officer of the Order of Canada, an Officer of the Order of British Columbia, a Chevalier de l'Ordre des Arts et des Lettres and a recipient of the Lieutenant Governor's Award for Literary Excellence.

Reviews

NATIONAL BESTSELLER

"The 60 pieces of micro-fiction found in [Binge]--sometimes linked, occasionally by plotline, but mainly by recurring characters--are precisely honed. . . . Hooks abound in Binge, pulling readers from one bite-sized story . . . to the next." --Maclean's

"[A] diverting set of literary appetizers." --Publishers Weekly

"[A] mind-bender. . . . Coupland's voice is as clever as ever, creating a specific sense of place." --Winnipeg Free Press
