Forget the famous Generation X The collection Life After God is Coupland's best work by far This collection of stories is related by theme and narrative voice; while the characters change from story to story the point of view remains the same and Coupland uses the same narrative voice throughout And what a voice it is Funny Perceptive Sad resigned to the past yet yearning for a better future a future which the author fears might always elude him The characters in Life After God are like real people than the characters in his other books who often assume the roles of cultural stereotypes and morph into cliches In different ways the characters in Life After God are all dealing with loss the loss of a lover of a sister a childhood friend one's own idealism And there are no happy endings At best the characters manage to accept their losses and find a sliver of hope to carry them through the rest of their lives Coupland's prose is lean and poetic; his eye for detail manages to convey much about a character or a situation through the use of one or two objects His monotone prose reflects the flat wounded states of his characters' souls Each of these stories is heartbreaking in its own way Despite his reputation as a novelist short fiction seems to be Coupland's natural medium His storytelling talents are average at best but his observations of character and feeling are superb It is the latter which makes Life After God such a moving experience
