Explore the lives of three disillusioned twenty-somethings who have abandoned their mundane jobs and headed to the California desert in search of a more meaningful existence. Douglas Coupland's Generation X is a fascinating tale of love, death, and nuclear waste, set against the backdrop of American cultural memory. Experience a world populated with dead TV shows and semi-disposable Swedish furniture, where the characters' fanatical independence and unsatisfied longing for permanence and love shines a dark spotlight on the anxieties of a generation with nowhere to turn.
