Biography:

Douglas Coupland is the author of numerous novels, including Generation X, Microserfs and Girlfriend In A Coma. In his piece on Santiago, Chile in the anthology Fortune Hotel - Twisted Travel Stories, he seeks to point out the complicit silence about Chile's past which underwrites its economic boom in the late nineties. "It's important to remember that this is a boom without any artistic or poetic soul because the government literally killed an entire generation of artists and poets. It's like that warren in Watership Down, where the rabbits live in luxury, but only at the price of regularized, undiscussed slaughter."
