Raymond Gunt likes to think of himself as a pretty decent guy—he
believes in karma, and helping his fellow man, and all that other good
stuff. Sure, he can be foulmouthed, occasionally misogynistic, and can
just generally rub people the wrong way—through no fault of his own! So
with all the positive energy he’s creating, it’s a little perplexing to
consider the recent downward spiral his life has taken…Could the
universe be trying to tell him something? Download and start listening now!
A B-unit cameraman with no immediate employment prospects, Gunt decides to accept his ex-wife Fiona’s offer to shoot a Survivor-style
reality show on an obscure island in the Pacific. With his upwardly
failing sidekick, Neal, in tow, Gunt somehow suffers multiple comas and
unjust imprisonment, is forced to reenact the “Angry Dance” from the
movie Billy Elliot, and finds himself at the center of a nuclear war—among other tribulations and humiliations.
A razor-sharp portrait of a morally bankrupt, gleefully wicked modern man, Worst. Person. Ever. is
a side-splittingly funny and gloriously filthy new novel from acclaimed
author Douglas Coupland. A deeply unworthy book about a dreadful human
being with absolutely no redeeming social value, it’s guaranteed to
brighten up your day.
