I've known Rosa Harris for 25 years, starting when she worked at a city magazine in Montreal. It was in the final few months before Generation X was published and there was no awareness in the culture that something, anything, might want to cleave away from the baby boomer's stranglehold on all things generational… She's one of the few boomers who is fully aware of just how annoying and self—absorbed her generation really is… fully aware of the historical forces that had to align to create the most… narcissistic birth cohort in the history of our planet, yet she can really tap into this awareness to create something sensitive and smile—inducing. I think you'll enjoy this book.
— Douglas Coupland, author, Generation X

Editorial Reviews

"Rosa Harris has assembled a series of very thought—provoking apercus of her times and generation. They are all from different angles and none is ponderous or over—long. The result is a very pleasing, very easy, and often poignant, read."
-- Conrad Black
