White Jazz by James Ellroy

Another James Ellroy and the most eccentric writing style so far. Packed with 1950s American slang/oplice language and strangely short sentences - 5 words, sometimes only 3. Good story line if you like his extremely blunt style. Still got more to read but not for a while.

Generation X by Douglas Coupland

Hmmmm, don't know what to say about this book. It is remarkably gentle and wandering. I expected something much sharper and focused. Worth the read but it took me some time 'cos I only took in it fairly short doses and didn't find it a page-turner, but did want to finish it.

Comments from K & S about Generation A in view of what I've said above would be welcome.

Erm, 5/10
