The story of one family piecing itself back together after a tragic highschool shooting, Hey Nostradamus! is Douglas Coupland's most soulful, piercing and searching novel yet.Pregnant and secretly married, Cheryl Anway scribbles her last will and testament – and erie premonition – on a school binder shortly before a rampaging trio of misfit classmates gun her down in a high school cafeteria. Overrun with paranoia, teenage angst and religious zeal in the ensuing massacre's wake, this sleepy Vancouver neighbourhood declares its saints, brands its demons and finally moves on.
'Douglas Coupland has surely reserved his place at the top table of North American fiction.' Independent on Sunday'Nothing less than sublime' Time Out'This is far too wise a book to offer answers, but it affirms that seeking them is a necessary part of our humanity.' Independent'Clever, affecting... God it was a pleasure to read.' Ali Smith, author of Hotel World
