In the third of Visual Editions’ ‘Writers in Residence’ series Douglas Coupland reports from inside the French telecommunications giant Alcatel-Lucent. ‘I thought that the Internet was a metaphor for life,’ he writes. ‘Now I think life is a metaphor for the Internet.’ Coupland, perhaps best known for his cult 1991 bestseller Generation X , will be in conversation about his latest book with the series’ initiator Alain de Botton.

Meet Raymond Gunt. Foul-mouthed. Misanthropic. Divorced. You might like him. The downward spiral of this TV cameraman’s career path is about to take in multiple comas, unjust imprisonment, nuclear war and forced re-enactments of scenes from Billy Elliot.

Meet Douglas Coupland. Author of Generation X, Microserfs, jPod and now Worst. Person. Ever. No writer captures the mass influence of pop culture quite like Douglas Coupland, and tonight he’ll be on hand to answer your questions, before signing copies of his latest novel.

Cult writer of international bestseller Generation X, Douglas Coupland joins us in a rare visit from Canada to discuss Worst.Person.Ever, a deeply satirical book about a dreadful human being with no redeeming value.
