I thought someone would have beat me to adding this to the list...
Probably my favourite of all his books, just because of the sheer power and scope of the main premise. It risks getting mawkish and pseudo-spiritual at the end, but he just about manages to pull it off. I like Coupland because he tries to pick out something as unfashionable as 'meaning' amidst the detritus of slacker consumerism, but always stays the right side of becoming a nineties carlos castenada.
Rating: 9/10
