Highly Inappropriate Tales for Young People


Formats & editions


A dark, funny and satirical collection of fairy tales from the bestselling author of Jpod, Generation X and Generation A

Ever wonder what would happen if Douglas Coupland's unhinged imagination met Graham Roumieu's insane knack for illustrating the ridiculously weird? The answer is seven, deliciously wicked tales featuring seven highly improbable, not only inappropriate, characters, including Donald, the Incredibly Hostile Juicebox, Hans, the Weird Exchange Student, Brandon, the Action Figure with Issues and Kevin, the Hobo Minivan with Extremely Low Morals. If you are over the age of consent, seriously weird, or just like to laugh, you'll love the unlovable miscreants unleashing their dark and unruly desires on every page of these unsuitable, completely hilarious tales.

About the Authors

Douglas Coupland

Douglas Coupland (pronounced KOHP-lend) (born 30 December 1961) is a Canadian writer, designer and visual artist. His first novel was the 1991 international bestseller Generation X: Tales for an Accelerated Culture. Since then, Coupland has written twelve more novels, which have been published in most languages. He has written and performed for the Royal Shakespeare Company and is a columnist for the Financial Times. He is a frequent contributor to the New York Times, e-flux, Dis and Vice. In 2000, after a decade of generating web graphics, Coupland amplified his visual art production and has recently had two separate museum retrospectives: 'Everywhere Is Anywhere Is Anything Is Everything' at the Royal Vancouver Art Gallery, the Royal Ontario Museum and the Museum of Contemporary Canadian Art; and 'Bit Rot' at the Witte de With Center for Contemporary Art in Rotterdam and Villa Stuck in Munich. In 2015 and 2016, Coupland was an artist-in-residence in the Paris Google Cultural Institute.
