I have been on a 'twenty-something ennui' reading kick of late. I've gone through Coupland's Generation X, Microserfs, and Generation A. These led into GNs like Adrian Tomine's Sleepwalk, Clowes' Ghost World (not really twenty-somethings), and a reread of Bechdel's Fun Home.

Where should I go from here for more themes of identity, purpose-searching, and commercial cultural commentary (preferably with recently-independent protagonists)?

Thanks! I have yet to read American Born Chinese, but have heard good things. It'll be next up. I read Blankets a long time ago; maybe I'll reread it before I check out Habibi. I have a shameful confession: I liked the Scott Pilgrim movie better than the comics.
