Today I started reading Douglas Coupland Generation X a Canadian friend passed it on to me. It followed a recent comment from another friend that you (generically) need to read books without bibliographies. I found this to be quite a succinct way of putting it, and as I was wanting to read non-academic material quite a timely remark.
Reading this book – where I obtained we spend our youth attaining wealth and our wealth attaining youth – has already provided for some deep and critical reflection on my own perspectives. I am only some 50 pages into this novel and finding many of the comments/observations/reflections, albeit not presented as factual, posing stark and valid questions to my current everyday consumer capitalist mediated life.
