Girlfriend in a Coma by Douglas Coupland

Girlfriend in a ComaGirlfriend in a Coma is a hell of a book.

We start in the 1970s at a teenage party where one of a group of friends falls into a coma. We then explore the lives of the other friends over several years as they build their lives, and get disillusioned with them. (oh, and there’s a chapter narrated with a friend who died several years earlier too).

Then Karen (in the coma) wakes up, and it all gets rather apocalyptic.

As per usual Coupland has packed a whole raft of stuff into just one slim and easy to read book.
