The Guardian offers up the first chapter in Douglas Coupland's novel All Families are Psychotic. One of the reviews at Amazon sums it up best...
Coupland's style is straightforward and self-aware. Like in his other books (for some reason, Microserfs comes to mind immediately), he's very capable of quickly drawing in the reader with a complex cast of characters who are faulted, funny, and fully human.
I certainly found that to be the case in Microserfs (which I read three or four times several years ago) and I appreciate the self aware style. Blogging is a lot like that where the writing is expected to be read, and the relationship between author and reader is casual.
