In 1988, a catastrophic episode of teen violence shatters a suburban community. Hey Nostradamus follows the aftermath in various voices across two decades: the teenage victims whose ordinary preoccupations with sex and spirituality will never evolve past that moment; the parents whose exposure to their children's underground world threatens their deepest convictions; and those who come to know the survivors only later in life, unable to fully realize what really transpired. Hey Nostradamus wrestles with religion and nihilism, sorrow and acceptance. It will take you to a place you didn't know existed.

I listened to this while out jogging. It's a terrific book for this purpose. Throughout there's a running theme of Faith, pain, isolation and yet always, always hope, belief, beauty and belonging.
The contrasts (beauty/ugliness, pain/healing, isolation/togetherness and more) run side by side throughout this book. It's so well done, the voices are real & warm.
I've never read a book by Douglas Coupland until now. I'll definitely be looking into his others. Terrific read.
