Canadian Fiction Anthology
Pop Goes the StoryPaperback - 1999
Pop culture, whether we like it or not, has burrowed into our collective consciousness like ringworm. It is inescapable, bombarding us with images and soundbites of Cher's last surgery, Bill Clinton's adultery, Bill Gates' breakfast cereal, conspiracies, alien autopsies, and Just Say No, Just Do It. At no other time in history has our common knowledge been so uniform.
So what does this shared collective memory mean to history? Identity? Fiction?
This new anthology stands to be a groundbreaking testament to the confusion of the age and our love / hate embrace of pop culture and technology. At times bizarre, at times ironic, definitely unique, this is fiction like you've never seen it before.
