Alli’s #CBR4 Review #20: Miss Wyoming by Douglas Coupland

Miss Wyoming by Douglas Coupland was a pretty good book. I don’t know if it is because I have been writing these for so long or what, but I don’t really have a whole lot to say about it but I am sure I will come up with something as I type along.

I will start off my directing you to some of my other reviews of Coupland books, always a good place to start. There’s Microserfs, Generation A, Girlfriend in a Coma, and Player One. Some I loved and some were only so-so, but overall I am becoming a pretty big Coupland fan, and I love that he is local here to Vancouver.

Miss Wyoming falls was one of the better ones, but I didn’t really love it. It is a tale of two people who have both abandoned their lives. There is the titular Miss Wyoming, Susan Colgate a former child pageant star and 80s TV actress. She walks away unscathed as the only survivor of a plane crash. She stays away for around a year, leaving the world thinking she is dead. The other is John Johnson, a blockbuster film producer who sells off all his possessions and lives as a homeless man after a near death experience.
