Saturday Word Play- Douglas Coupland Gets A Clue

I'm still on the road from Saskatchewan to British Columbia. Here's a game based around one of BC's most famous authors, Douglas Coupland. Each clue spells a piece of a title and each piece is in order. Which books can you figure out?

As always, feel free to do all 8 at home, but only answer only one in the comment section. That way 7 more people will have a chance to play along.

1. a segment of DNA, sewer rodent, electrically charged particle, signature for the illiterate

2. fraud, child term for feces, narrow road, we'll have fun fun fun til her daddy takes this bird away

3. type of concert check, Betty White's character on the Golden Girls, initials of Don Knott's character on Three's Company, sulfur's symbol

4. not boy, not Mon Tues Wed Thurs Sat or Sun, not the beginning, not out, not DC, not x in Tic-Tac-Toe, not pa

5. Whole or everything, failing letter, author McKay of Birth House, untruths, first letter of the Roman alphabet, abbreviation for Palin's party, abbreviation for band behind "Kool Thing," carbon's symbol, Santa says this word three times, a sudden repetitve twitching

6. The way Johnny Cash addresses Porter, negative, precedes Nick or John's, movie rating suggesting that those under 17 should be accompanied by an adult, Eve's partner, me and you

7. slang for illegal drug popular at raves, Bill Withers wants you to do this on him, either, an oil platform or large truck, denotes authorship

8. abbreviation for Justice of the Peace, abbreviation for overdose

Which have you read?
