Fully Booked
London Review Bookshop

In the third of Visual Editions' ‘Writers in Residence’ series Douglas Coupland reports from inside the French telecommunications giant Alcatel-Lucent. ‘I thought that the Internet was a metaphor for life,’ he writes. ‘Now I think life is a metaphor for the Internet.’ Coupland, perhaps best known for his cult 1991 bestseller Generation X, will be in conversation about his latest book with the series’ initiator Alain de Botton.
