    One thought on “Souvenir of Canada 2”

    1. There is still plenty left to say about Canada of course, but the problem is that Coupland said his piece so well the first time around that 2 reads like a variation on the theme of Canada s and the world s uncertain future, the lingering effects of British imperialism on the country s identity not something one thinks about with Canada , and uniquely Canadian pop culture thriving despite the best efforts of MTV and other American programming all mixed with brief personal essays from Coupland.Di [...]

    2. Souvenir of Canada 2 is just as quirky, insightful, and hilarious as the original It has the same format as the first, gorgeous pictures and art that combine with Coupland s short essays to explain Coupland s experience of being Candadian Canada should consider itself lucky to have such an apologist on their side Coupland speaks bluntly about the delights about being Canadian, as well as his biggest frustrations He has the insight from being a native, but has traveled and lived in so many places [...]

    3. i d read souvenir of canada one and two back to back i think it s probably best to read it like that while both can stand alone, i found it all the enjoyable to read it like one big book instead there is artwork in this book, than the first, but all is very interesting but douglas coupland has always been a fascinating artist and writer so there s no surprise there i have to say i was most enthralled with the quilts and the water planet who knew plastic water bottles could be so beautiful easi [...]

    4. This follow up to Coupland s earlir edition of nation sensibility building is not as strong as the first The first book was pretty much divided between reasonably similarly structured mini essays and photographs This time around, the essays vary much widely in intent and length, they re loosely written and autobiographical, and the images don t transmit information about the country with the sense of depth and feeling they did the first time around However, the book is a lot angrier than the [...]

    5. While I enjoyed reading this book, I much preferred Souvenir of Canada 1 to this second installment I found that I could relate to the first and that I laughed out loud throughout it This one seems a little serious.

    6. More of the same from Volume 1is time with a bit emphasis on nostalgic kitsch For some of us older geezers, it s as good as putting in an old VHS tape into the VCRor even a Betamax My god, how I remember those
