Shopping in JailIdeas, Essays, and Stories for the Increasingly Real Twenty-First Century

Douglas Coupland - Shopping in Jail
A collection of essays on art and culture.
In Douglas Coupland's writing, the doldrums of a world afflicted by the pains of dotcom booms and busts, the ascendency of subcultures to pop cultures, and the subsequent struggle for identity are counterbalanced by droll, personal, and incisive analyses. This collection of nonfiction essays provides an illuminating meander through what we call culture today.
