Book review in a lift - Eleanor Rigby


It's about a really lonely woman (hence the title) who meets up with her son who she had adopted when she was teenager. Funny, quirky and sad at times. I do like Douglas Coupland, he's a good teller of strange tales and has very well tuned antennae for social mores. 7/10.

I'm having a right nosey through your blog...

Douglas Coupland scares me. All his books are about loneliness. Come to think about it the whole of American arthouse films are the same. Anyway, I guess Coupland typifies the genre... if it is a genre. Or maybe Brett Easton Ellis does?
