Dimensions: 8.0in. x 5.2in. x 0.7in.From the bestselling author of Generation X and Microserfs, comes the absurd and tender story of a hard-living movie producer and a former child beauty pageant contender who only find each other by losing themselves. Waking up in an L. A. hospital, John Johnson is amazed that it was the flu and not an overdose of five different drugs mixed with cognac that nearly killed him. As a producer of high-adrenaline action flicks, hes led a decadent and dangerous life, purchasing his way through every conceivable variant of sex. But each variation seems to take him one notch away from a capacity for love, and while movie-making was once a way for him to create worlds of sensation, it now bores him. After his near-death experience, John decides to walk away from his life. Susan Colgate is an unbankable former tv star and child beauty pageant contender. Forced to marry a heavy metal singer in need of a Green Card after her parents squander her sitcom earnings, she becomes the alpha road rat. But when the bands popularity dwindles, the marriage dissolves. Flying back to Los Angeles in Economy, Susans plane crashes and only she survives. As she walks away from the disaster virtually unscathed, Susan, too, decides to disappear. John and Susan are two souls searching for love across the bizarre, celebrity-obsessed landscape of LA, and are driven, almost fatefully, toward each other. Hilarious, fast-paced and ultimately heart-wrenching, Miss Wyoming is about people who, after throwing off their self-made identities, begin the fearful search for a love that exposes all vulnerabilities.

The eponymous heroine of Miss Wyoming is one Susan Colgate, a teen beauty queen and low-rent soap actress. Dragooned into show business by her demonically pushy, hillbilly mother, Susan has hit rock bottom by the time Douglas Coupland's seventh book begins. But when she finds herself the sole survivor of an airplane crash, this "low-grade onboard celebrity" takes the opportunity to start all over again: She felt like a ghost. She tried to find her bodily remains there in the wreckage and was unable to do so.... Then she was lost in a crowd of local onlookers and trucks, parping sirens and ambulances. She picked her way out of the melee and found a newly paved suburban road that she followed away from the wreck into the folds of a housing development. She had survived, and now she needed sanctuary and silence. She's not, of course, the only Hollywood burnout who'd like to vanish into thin air. Her opposite number, a producer of big-budget, no-brainer action flicks named John Johnson, stages a similar disappearing act. After a near-death experience, in the course of which he is treated to a vision of Susan's face, he roams the western badlands. And even after his return to L.A., Johnson is determined to unravel the mystery of this woman's fate. Throughout, Coupland displays his usual gift for capturing the absurdities of modern existence. The distinctive minutiae of our age--junk mail and fast food, sitcoms and Singapore slings, and contemporary,fiction,humor,literature and fiction Literature & Fiction, Vintage

ID: 690892215

Susan Colgate -- beauty queen, child star, ´´good daughter´´ on the long-running network series Meet the Blooms, rock ´n´ roll wife -- has vanished. Again. The first time was big news: Her plane crashed over Seneca, Ohio, and she was presumed dead by her adoring public. But Susan had in fact walked away unscathed, the only survivor, and entered a new, less fabulous life.John Johnson, Hollywood producer -- everyone admires his block-busters Bel Air PI and Mega Force -- has been careening through a mid-life crisis that included his own disappearing act from society. But a near-death experience brings him to a realization: Once he has Susan Colgate in his life, all will be right with the world. Which is why he will stop at nothing to find her.Here is another triumph from Douglas Coupland, author of the bestselling Generation X. Part romance, part mystery, part sidesplitting satire of the maga-star mentality, Miss Wyoming is further proof that Coupland can always be depended on to give us a bitingly entertaining, deliciously unpredictable story.
