I'm still reading Douglas Coupland's HEY NOSTRADAMUS. I like it, and I'm just about finished with Jason's story. In this one, his girlfriend (Cheryl Anyway, recording her thoughts in the first section posthumously) is killed in an '88 high school cafeteria shooting spree, and he and everyone else has to deal with the repercussion socially and spiritually. Anyway, it's keeping my attention, and I like the way Coupland disects relationships in this first person kind of narrative.
