Kitten Coupland

Added my review of Douglas Coupland’s Kitten Clone over at Good Reports. I’ve been pretty harsh on Coupland over the years, so I’m happy to say that Kitten Clone, which is about the corporation Alcatel-Lucent and the digital revolution generally, is one of the best books I read in 2014. It’s a dispiriting story (the employees of Alcatel seem a rather sad and pessimistic bunch, at least to me), but Coupland’s report is lively, mature, and full of insight. I hope we’ll get more like this from him.
