Come meet Douglas Coupland and hear him read from his new novel, jPod: "Ethan Jarlewski and five co-workers whose names start with J are bureaucratically marooned in JPod, a no-escape architectural limbo on the fringes of a massive Vancouver game design company. The six workers daily confront the forces that define our era: global piracy, boneheaded marketing staff, people-smuggling, the rise of China, marijuana grow ops, Jeff Probst and the remnants of the burst tech bubble of the nineties. Full of word games, visual jokes and sideways jabs, this book throws a sharp, pointed lawn dart into the heart of contemporary life."
