Douglas Coupland was born in Germany on December 30. 1961. His family relocated to Canada in 1965 as his father had been in the Canadian Royal Air Force and had completed his service in Europe. Douglas did not have a lot of respect for his parents because he thought they were too restrictive and their belief system too narrow. Douglas Coupland went to college to study physics but it did not go well and he graduadted to studying art instead. He enjoyed his art studies very well and made many friends during this time. However through a fateful event he got employment writing for a magazine and enjoyed it so much that he decided that this was what he wanted to do. While he was writing Generation X Coupland was working on other projects which seemed lucrative but the success of Generation X convinced him further of where his ambitions laid.
