No One Is Talking About This

Patricia Lockwood’s No One is Talking About This asks what it means when a person exists entirely Online, and what happens when that digital existence is tested by off-line events. The book starts with a sharp and hilarious fragmentary case study of a narrator addicted to the Portal, an all-consuming social network. Then, something happens to the narrator’s sister that no meme can explain. I’m being vague because I want you to experience the power of this unforgettable novel for yourself, and because it’s nearly impossible to categorize or explain it. I’ll just say this, inadequate as it may be: Lockwood has written an urgent, important novel unlike anything I’ve ever read. Recommended by Danny
