From The Independent (December 3, 1998)

HAVING HAILED McJobs and the slacker existence in his cult novel Generation X, Douglas Coupland is now in search of some further advancement. Coupland is leaving his long-time publishing company, ReaganBooks, because he is not satisfied with a suggested pounds 500,000 advance for his next novel, Miss Wyoming, about lost souls in Hollywood. Coupland, apparently, wanted to reel in a cool million for his new book, but this was too much for ReaganBooks which politely waved him goodbye, saying: "It has been a great pleasure to have published Doug. We wish him great success."

That sincere wish must have been granted, as Miss Wyoming is now going to be published by Pantheon for an undisclosed sum. Goodbye McJobs, hello McMoney.
