A Souvenir of Canada

Posted in Uncategorized by Simon Bisson on November 26, 2007

Found while pootling on YouTube last night, a series of promotional videos for Douglas Coupland’s new novel The Gum Thief

Rather excellent little animations, and (what I assume is) Coupland’s flat affectless narration giving a feel of the vast emotional spaces that lie at the heart of his books.

(And apropos of this blog post’s title, it turns out they’ve made a film from his two Souvenir of Canada books.
