Raymond Gunt likes to think of himself as a pretty decent guy—he believes in karma, and helping his fellow man, and all that other good stuff. Sure, he can be foulmouthed, occasionally misogynistic, and can just generally rub people the wrong way—through no fault of his own! So with all the positive energy he’s creating, it’s a little perplexing to consider the recent downward spiral his life has taken.… Could the universe be trying to tell him something? A B-unit cameraman with no immediate employment prospects, Gunt decides to accept his ex-wife Fiona’s offer to shoot a Survivor-style reality show on an obscure island in the Pacific. With his upwardly failing sidekick, Neal, in tow, Gunt somehow suffers multiple comas and unjust imprisonment, is forced to reenact the “Angry Dance” from the movie Billy Elliot, and finds himself at the center of a nuclear war—among other tribulations and humiliations. A razor-sharp portrait of a morally bankrupt and gleefully wicked modern man, Worst. Person. Ever. is a side-splittingly funny and gloriously filthy new novel from acclaimed author Douglas Coupland. A deeply unworthy audiobook about a dreadful human being with absolutely no redeeming social value, it’s guaranteed to brighten up your day.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“An entry—a fun one—in a personal, pop-cult canon of its own.” Globe and Mail (Toronto)
“Provocative and entertaining.” Daily Mail (London)
“Raymond Gunt, the narrator of Coupland’s latest, is an unemployed cameraman and a horrible human being…He is a fabulous monster, with nothing and no one safe from his vitriol…Coupland skewers a pop world’s growing insensibilities, and his protagonist is a charming villain whom readers will likely root for, even as he’s insulting them.” Publishers Weekly (starred review)
