Hey Nostradamus!

This isn't from the NY Times Sunday Book review. Not much there this week.

I bought this Coupland novel earlier in the week. Coupland designed the cover, which he's also done for other books. (I'll post those after I visit the bookstore and do some more checking.)

I'm not quite sure what I think about this cover -- feel free to tell me what *you* think -- but I do want to ask a question: Who else designs their own covers?

Coupland is a busy guy -- check out what he's up to at

Looks like a European street sign.

I think he's probably a creative genius. But some you like and others you don't...and he might be too inside himself with this one.

How does it read? Is it worth buying?

Just started it. Lots of talking dead people, who always seem to inhabit his books. I think I like it, but a little too early to tell.

I must say I thought this was a great design for a great book.
