A Canadian visual artist and idiosyncratic writer with a semi-cult following offers a collection of addictive short stories. In these 6-to-8- minute first-person vignettes, stunningly narrated by a cast of actors and the author, Coupland's mostly urban and edgy characters tell their first-person stories with the snappy brevity and spontaneous tone you find in online forums or impromptu sharing between strangers. The varied backgrounds of his characters (young/old, gay/straight, successful people/losers) are perfectly matched to the acting ranges of this outstanding ensemble. From an erudite-sounding Brit to the recognizable sounds of a streetwise drag queen, yuppie snob, and young punk, the casting choices fit the characters supremely well. The performances are juxtaposed in ways that make listening fresh from start to finish. T.W.
