Coupland Narrative Keeps Depressing Storybook in Foreground

glove pond drunk.jpg

Crush, Toronto presents us with part two of the campaign for Douglas Coupland's novel The Gum Thief. In this installment of love and apocalypse to Muzak and stray stapling, we learn the following:

- Bethany is expectedly into crows
- Roger's dead ambitions sound familiar (ever want to be the next F. Scott? Have a seat, take a glass)
- Glove Pond, the fictional book within the book, is still about people drinking. Also, we're hellbent on incorporating the phrase "manfailure" in some future conversation.

Like kids hooked on radio serials we await the last installment, which comes out next week.

And then will we get the book? It's increasingly looking that way, but there's a sense it will only confirm the nihilistic turn Valley of the Dolls promised we'd take when we were only teenagers.

Wow, Bethany. Life is sad.
