Lucy Ellmann VS Worst. Person. Ever by Douglas Coupland

Lucy Ellmann in The Guardian was not entertained by Douglas Coupland’s Worst. Person. Ever:

“Through total immersion in the banality it purports to expose, his new novel out-sarcasms itself. Like Chuck Palahniuk’s Snuff, it’s determined to gross you out, offering a barrage of sexism, homophobia, shit, vomit, sputum, and all the other stuff of adolescent humour. Worst. Person. Ever. can only appeal to people who like to hear women belittled, and everything trashed – and it’s hard to see the necessity for it when we’ve already got plenty of trash and belittled women.”
