This book is yet another Coupland that made me laugh and feel good about myself. It’s about a family that is absolutely nutso meeting for a reunion to celebrate the first trip into space by the families’ one productive member. As I like to say, Hilarity ensues. In 2009, the book is being made into a movie. I am going to it.
If you’re feeling awkward about your own family (hello!) then read this book and you will feel better about it all.
I also got this book at my local library, one of the few social programs that lives on.
