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.
douglas coupland is one of the most far-sighted and observant writers of our time. Inventor of many a catchphrase and memorable descriptive epithet, his books are cults that millions have read. Among his previous books are Generation X and Shampoo Planet.
