Editorial Reviews

Review

"Douglas Coupland is a media theorist, artist, writer, and designer. He's also wickedly funny, which makes his thoughts on modernity all the more biting and enjoyable. Bit Rot...shows off all sides of Coupland's work without ever losing his sardonic edge.... The book feels like an ongoing conversation with a hilarious, intelligent friend...an engaging, thought-provoking look at the modern age through the thoughts of one smart, funny man.” —Noah Cruickshank, Shelf Awareness

"Douglas Coupland is back, with a tasty collection of bingeable treats for a new generation." —Joshua Chaplinsky, Lit Reactor

"Bit Rot offers priceless insights.... Few people are better [than Douglas Coupland] at explaining the ramifications of the digital era." —Jane Ciabattari, BBC

“[Douglas Coupland’s] voice is undiminished after more than a quarter century in the cultural spotlight . . . a writer, thinker and artist utterly perfect of and for his time.” —Robert J. Wiersema, National Post
 
“[A] respected futurist, bestselling author, prolific visual artist . . . [Bit Rot] is classic Coupland – created intentionally for the Internet age.” —Marsha Lederman, The Globe and Mail

"We should really pay attention to Coupland. His eye is so firmly on the ball he’s virtually clairvoyant." —Nicholas Lezard, The Guardian

"[Coupland] is at his best when he muses on new opportunities and challenges presented by technology." The National

“Unremittingly famous for defining a generation, Douglas Coupland is, himself, a creative whirl.”The New York Times
  
“A contemporary prophet.”The Sunday Times
 
“A brilliant social commentator.” Elle
 
“A shrewd observer of modernity.” The Observer
 
“A writer, thinker and artist utterly perfect of and for his time.”National Post
 
“We should really pay attention to Coupland. His eye is so firmly on the ball he’s virtually clairvoyant.” The Guardian

“An eclectic and thought-provoking collection . . . [Bit Rot] reveals the breadth and depth of Coupland's writing.” Kirkus Reviews

"The current landscape, the mindless and endless landslide of mass culture versus individual vulnerability - no one sees these or gets to the heart of them quite like Coupland." —Ali Smith

"In the future, if people are curious about what it was like to live in our times, in the early twenty-first century, they will do well to read Douglas Coupland." —Yann Martel
