Amerikanische Polaroids
Roman; Essay. Goldmann, Mnchen. 247 Seiten. 14.90 DM . ISBN: 3-442-43565-X
Spannende Reportagen: Polaroids von den Toten Dieses Buch Freunden weiterempfehlen. Dieses Buch kaufen bei Amazon.de Buy Douglas Coupland: Amerikanische Polaroids at Amazon.com (USA) Weitere Buchbesprechungen bei Amazon.de. Coupland portrtiert die US-Gesellschaft in der 1. Hlfte der 90er Jahre. Sein "Brief an Kurt Cobain" macht wirklich betroffen, und seine demografische Untersuchung ber Brentwood, das L.A.-Viertel der Starlets und "Post-Promis", in dem Marilyn Monroe starb, ist ein Meisterwerk des beschreibenden Journalismus. Das glamourse Titelfoto sollte niemanden ber die Ernsthaftigkeit von Couplands Ansatz irrefhren: Es zeigt das berhmteste Filmfoto der Monroe aus jener Szene, als ihr weier Rock ber einem U-Bahn-Schacht nach oben geblasen wird. Das Foto passt perfekt zu Brentwood. Wer wissen mchte, wie sich die westliche Welt verndert und wohin sie sich entwickeln knnte, wird in diesem vielseitigen Buch eine Menge Spuren und Hinweise finden, die eine interessante Lektre gewhrleisten. Der Autor Douglas Coupland ist die literarische Stimme der sogenannten "Generation X", jener jungen Leute Anfang der 90er jahre, die vom Materialismus und Erfolgstreben der 80er Jahre desillusioniert waren und nun als "Slacker" in den Tag hineinlebten und sich nur mit kleinen "McJobs" ber Wasser hielten.

Girlfriend in a coma
Roman. Hoffmann und Campe, ISBN: 3-455-01174-8
Dieses Buch Freunden weiterempfehlen. Dieses Buch kaufen bei Amazon.de Buy Douglas Coupland: Girlfriend in a coma at Amazon.com (USA) Weitere Buchbesprechungen bei Amazon.de. Jeder hat sich schonmal die Frage gestellt, wie die Welt wohl in zwanzig oder dreiig Jahren aussehen wird. Was wre, wenn man heute in ein Koma fallen und in zwanzig Jahren wieder aufwachen wrde? Douglas Coupland (1961), offensichtlich fasziniert von dieser Frage, lt in "Girlfriend in a Coma" einen Teenager der 70er Jahre in ein Koma fallen und fast zwanzig Jahre spter in einer modernen, schnellen Welt wieder aufwachen. Ein Verlangen nach der guten alten Zeit ist hierbei nicht zu bersehen, doch auer Melancholie gibt es in diesem fnften Roman des kanadischen Kult-Autors noch einiges mehr. Wie in seinen vorherigen Romanen kreiert Coupland glaubwrdige Figuren, die er, mit etwas Selbstironie ausgestattet, nach ihrem Platz im Leben suchen lt. Und wie in seinen anderen Bchern tut er das sehr einfhlsam und gleichzeitig witzig-ironisch. Doch die Ironie, bisher Markenzeichen fr Coupland, scheint ihm in Girlfriend in a Coma nicht mehr ausreichend. In diesem Buch will der Autor mehr und das wirkt letzten Endes etwas befremdend. Die Pointe der Geschichte soll hier nicht vorweg genommen werden, nur soviel: Coupland verpat seinem Buch im letzten Drittel einen Schu Stephen King gemischt mit einigen unerklrbar-mysterisen Vorfllen la X-Files. Er lt die Welt untergehen und wieder auferstehen. Aber es soll eine bessere Welt werden. Dafr mssen die Freunde jedoch etwas tun, sie mssen ihr Leben ndern; sie mssen alles hinterfragen, fragen und andere zum fragen annimieren - fr ein besseres Bewustsein ihrer selbst. Nein, dieses mal ist Coupland nicht ironisch, er meint es ernst - leider. Er wolle mit diesen Buch, so meint er in einem Interview, die Leser aufrufen, Fragen zu stellen und sich um ihre Umgebung zu kmmern. Das ist nett gemeint, nur erinnert seine angebotene Lsung zu sehr an religise Besessenheit. Oder sind es nur bertriebene Hippie-Ideale? Egal, es bleibt nur zu hoffen, da Coupland die Welt in seinem nchsten Roman nicht noch mehr verndern will.

Roman. Flamingo, London. ISBN: 0-006-54859-8
Dieses Buch Freunden weiterempfehlen. Dieses Buch kaufen bei Amazon.de Buy Douglas Coupland: Microserfs at Amazon.com (USA) Weitere Buchbesprechungen bei Amazon.de. Mikrosklaven ist die Geschichte einer Gruppe von jungen Leuten, die fr die heutige Zeit durchaus reprsentativ sein knnte. Alles beginnt im Hause eines renommierten Softwarekonzerns in Redmond, dessen Name vom Autor nicht gendert wurde, weswegen hnlichkeiten mit einer existierenden Firma nicht zufllig, sondern beabsichtigt sind. Das Unglaubliche ist eingetreten: Ein Programmierer wird fr einen Fehler von Bill persnlich per Email "geflamet", was bisher nur in Ausnahmefllen vorgekommen sein soll. Der Alltag bei Microsoft ist hart, bekanntlich haben diejenigen, die dort angestellt sind, im Grunde kein Privatleben, da ihr ganzes Leben sich quasi in der Firma abspielt. Die eigene Wohnung ist nicht mehr als ein Schlafplatz, weswegen jeder sich bemht, sein Bro so persnlich zu gestalten wie nur mglich, denn dort verbringt man schlielich die meiste Zeit. Douglas Coupland erzhlt seine Geschichte aus der Sicht von Dan, einem Mitglied der Gruppe, der eine Art Tagebuch fhrt, und es ist in der Ich-Form geschrieben. Dan erzhlt von seinen Freunden, seiner Familie, was er den Tag ber erlebt, was er denkt und fhlt. Allen ist klar, dass sie bei Microsoft auf Dauer nicht berleben knnen, es sei denn, sie verzichten vllig auf ein Privatleben. Was liegt also nher, als sich selbstndig zu machen und dem groen Vorbild nachzueifern? An Ideen mangelt es ihnen nicht, auch nicht an der ntigen Begeisterung, die dieser Aufbruch in eine ungewisse Zukunft mit sich bringt. Der Leser begleitet sie auf ihrem Weg ins "Erwachsenenleben" und hat teil an ihren kleineren und greren Sorgen und Nten.

    Please excuse the pretension, but Douglas Coupland seemed so much more clever when I was 19.
    This is not to say that Douglas Coupland is not a talented writer. Even his lesser novels pull the reader in. In Eleanor Rigby Life After God is my favorite Coupland novel to date primarily because he limits himself to his writing: no clever gimmicks or otherworldly plotlines. And that Generation X Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius jPod jPod is his first novel to step away from Generation X and into Y. I sit precariously on the X/Y border and enjoy any discussion of the defining traits of my generation, especially from a writer who practically defined his. Microserfs The same day that I bought the book, I caught a story on NPR about Generation Y-ers entering the job market. You can listen to the piece here

    Coupland, Douglas - Eleanor Rigby
    Life After God Few books have affected me spiritually as much as Life After God Life After God After 20 years of church and youth group and the Bible being whittled down to bite-size, self-help morsels for me, I felt fresh and in love, and it had taken a writer from outside the church to remind me of this. Life After God seemed more personal, while Coupland typically writes obvious fiction. Hey, Nostradamus! and All Families are Psychotic , were disappointing. All Families are Psychotic , despite its brilliant title, lacked intimacy. Hey, Nostradamus! started well but ended on an unsatisfying note. I did not have high hopes for his newest release, Eleanor Rigby One of the best aspects of Life After God Eleanor Rigby brings back that sense of lovely loneliness and combines it with other Coupland trademarks: apocalyptic visions, mysterious turns of events and off-handed wit. Eleanor Rigby as much as I enjoyed Life After God Eleanor Rigby reminds us that the writing is an art form that evolves and develops with time.

19. INTERVIEW WITH DOUGLAS COUPLAND
An interview by Alexander Laurence from 1994.
http://www.altx.com/interviews/douglas.coupland.html
Interview with Douglas Coupland
by Alexander Laurence
(c) 1994 Douglas Coupland is a lucid Canadian writer who loves nature. He reminded me of that fact. "Whenever I smoked pot in high school it was always around nature." He is the author of three books: Generation X, Shampoo Planet, and most recently, Life After God. His new book of short stories and drawings describes the mental framework of someone who grew up in a secular environment. Coupland is a frequent contributor for The New Republic, The New York Times, and Wired. For Wired he recently wrote "Microserfs" which was about Bill Gates and the Microsoft company. Coupland was born on December 30, 1961 in a NATO base in West Germany. He now lives in Vancouver, where he grew up. He claims that the most important images in his life were Marcia Brady, The Poseidon Adventure, and Patty Hearst. His story, "Patty Hearst," recalls the days of her captivity in a Western Addition room in San Francisco. One of the Baudrillard-like comments by Coupland in his new book explores his new view of memory: "I believe that you've had most of your important memories by the time you're thirty. After that, memory becomes water overflowing into an already full cup." Coupland, as a writer, has always been short on character and psychology, and big on ideas and conceptual things. Many excerpts from his new book, can be seen on MTV. He may be one of the few contemporary writers who is guilty of too much thinking.

    Seven Days in the Life of Young Microsoft. Maybe the search for the next great compelling application is really the search for human identity.

    By Douglas Coupland Friday This morning, just after 11:00, Michael locked himself in his office and he won't come out. Bill (Bill!) sent Michael this totally wicked flame-mail from hell on the e-mail system - and he just wailed on a chunk of code Michael had written. Using the Bloom County-cartoons-taped-on-the-door index, Michael is certainly the most sensitive coder in Building Seven - not the type to take criticism easily. Exactly why Bill would choose Michael of all people to wail on is confusing. We figured it must have been a random quality check to keep the troops in line. Bill's so smart. Bill is wise.
