No One Is Talking About This by Patricia Lockwood


Bookseller Review by Elle: 

A commentary on social media, modern politics, and life in the technological age. Lockwood’s voice is very much a Millennial one – her style of writing is often humorous, sometimes meme-like, and bizarre (with moments of being incredibly profound!) The choice of writing style and subject is beautiful, bonkers, unique and exciting!  The almost poetic-like prose was a joy to read – I was constantly surprised, shocked, and never knew what was going to happen next.

A woman known for her viral social media posts travels the world speaking to her adoring fans, her entire existence overwhelmed by the Internet – or what she terms ‘the portal’. Are we in hell? the people of the portal ask themselves. Are we all just going to keep doing this until we die? Suddenly, two texts from her mother pierce the fray: ‘Something has gone wrong,’ and ‘How soon can you get here?’ As real life and its stakes collide with the increasing absurdity of the portal, the woman confronts a world that seems to contain both an abundance of proof that there is goodness, empathy and justice in the universe, and a deluge of evidence to the contrary.
