The brilliant new novel from the bestselling cult author of them all.
Susan and John need to disappear – Susan and John need to find each other.
Meet Susan Colgate – Miss Wyoming. Winner of a hundred teen pageants, child TV soap star, owner of a hideously pushy mother… and now reduced to small, brainless parts in small, brainless movies. Oh, and sole survivor of Flight 802. If she were to walk away from the wreckage now, before the emergency crews get here, she could disappear and nobody would ever know…
Meet John Johnson – action film producer (Bel Air P.I… um, Bel Air P.I. 2), occasional sado-masochist, junkie. He just died – but only for 5 minutes. But while he was gone, he saw a vision of a woman's face and realized that it was time to escape, to ditch the baggage of being horny, rich, lonely John Johnson and to lose himself. To disappear.
Wouldn't it be nice if they were to find themselves and get together?
In many ways a reprise of Girlfriend in a Coma, Miss Wyoming represents a further leap forwards into the World According to Coupland – a witty, genuinely funny look at who we are, how we can change, and how we can make a difference.
'Picture Joseph Heller and Kurt Vonnegut collaborating on a Tinseltown version of Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance and you come halfway to grasping Coupland's brand of thoughtful, supremely funny storytelling.' amazon.com'If Kerouac had been a couch potato, this is the kind of book he might have written.'
