Award History

2015 Finalist

Hilary Weston Writers’ Trust Prize for Nonfiction
for Kitten Clone: Inside Alcatel-Lucent

Jury Citation

“A book about the world we live in and the world that is coming. With disarming skill, Douglas Coupland lets us know how his own brain has been altered by the Internet as he glides effortlessly from one thought to another, from one Alcatel-Lucent outpost to another, while attempting to avoid a Cassandra complex. The light, optimistic tone masks two disquieting observations: the end of an era of computing progress and the power of the virtual world to reshape our real, physical world and ourselves. Highly entertaining, but also unnerving.” – 2015 Hilary Weston Writers’ Trust Prize for Nonfiction Jury (Stevie Cameron, Will Ferguson, and JJ Lee)
