The Gum Thief By Douglas Coupland Bloomsbury Pounds 7.99
By LAURENCE PHELAN
Circular and basically plotless, The Gum Thief must rank among the more minor of Coupland's dozen novels, but it is still a touching story about the transformative power of writing and the value of human connection. And it still has on most pages images or ideas capable of making either the head or the heart race.
