Douglas Coupland’s game-changing novel Generation X turned 25 in 2016, and we feel old now. Meanwhile, with Bit Rot, Coupland keeps refining what he’s been ever since: one of the country’s most fascinating thinkers. The new book of essays and stories delves into visions of the techno-future and humanity’s increasingly unclear role in it.
