A humorous and endearing look at Canada Stubbies. Hockey. Instant mac and cheese. Whatever your idea of Canada is, you can be sure to find it here. Douglas Coupland, author of the bestselling book, Generation X, is a born-and-raised Canadian who is setting off in search of pop culture items with a north-of-the-border "feel" in order to showcase them in his new artistic creation: an exhibit he calls "Canada House." Souvenir Of Canada chronicles the construction of Canada House, Coupland's massive, personal project intended to bring worldwide awareness to Canadian heritage. One artifact at a time, he revisits nostalgic memories, resurrecting a pride and understanding of the land that over 30 million people call home. Based on the book by the same name, Souvenir Of Canada presents a unique look at the Great White North.
Canadians have a great sense of humour and it's nice to see that here. Coupland's writing is great, and so is his storytelling.Published on Nov. 22 2007 by Leon R
