Loneliness Virus: Doug Coupland's World

Bill, Brent. "Loneliness virus: Doug Coupland's world," Christian Century 117, no. 31 November 2000: 1150-1152.

Brent Bill examines the world of Douglas Coupland, a Canadian writer who burst on the scene in 1991 with “Generation X.” Bill notes that Coupland's book, "Generation X," offered an array of terms that by themselves constituted a social and spiritual critique of the age. Bill’s article offers an overview of several of Coupland’s writings suggesting that Coupland’s upbringing caused him to write and express certain ideals in his books regarding religion. In his conclusion, Bill proposes that Coupland's writings and the characters within are an expression of his own religious quest.
