Raymond Gunt is a dreadful human being. He has no redeeming social value – a foul-mouthed, misanthropic cameraman with creditors, ex-wives and homeless people trailing behind him. In the words of the author, Raymond ‘is a living, walking, talking, hot steaming pile of pure id.’ In Canadian novelist Douglas Coupland’s new book ‘Worst. Person. Ever’, follow the filthy and funny story of Raymond’s spiralling career and even though he is the worst, you may just grow to like him. The postmodern writer and author of ‘Generation X’ , ‘MicroSerfs’ and ‘jPod’ will be at the Shaw Theatre on October 8 as part of a Time Out Live and Foyles event. Head down to listen to Douglas in conversation with acclaimed journalist Miranda Sawyer, his dead-on musings about pop culture, ask him questions and get your copy of ‘Worst. Person. Ever’ signed by the man himself.
