#52 Eleanor Rigby

In the back of my paperback edition of Douglas Coupland's Eleanor Rigby, he says that Liz Dunn is his favourite character. There's an actual person named Liz Dunn in his life, but the character bears no resemblance to his real-life friend. And I can see why, she's a wonderful character and the novel is sweet, short, and fun to read. It's been years since I read anything by Douglas Coupland, after Generation X, I never went back, maybe dismayed by the pop culture relevance in his books. But I sort of regret that now, having enjoyed this novel so much.
