Gods Without Men


The novel was well received by critics.[1][2] Notably, in his New York Times review of the book, Douglas Coupland coined the term "translit" in reference to the novel and other similar works. He defines the term as a genre in which "...novels cross history without being historical; they span geography without changing psychic place...". Coupland cites The Hours and Cloud Atlas as contemporary "tentpoles" of the genre.[2]
