LIFE AFTER GOD

About The Book

In this compellingly innovative collection of stories, bestselling author Douglas Coupland cuts through the hype of modern living to find a rare grace amid our lives—uncovering a new kind of truth for a culture stuck on fast-forward: a culture seemingly beyond God.

We are the first generation raised without God. We are creatures with strong religious impulses, yet they have nowhere to flow in this world of shopping and TV, Kraft dinners, and jets. How do we cope with loneliness? Anxiety? The collapse of relationships? How do we reach the quiet, safe layer of our lives?
