THE FIRST NOVEL FROM PATRICIA LOCKWOOD

'A furiously original novel, alive and unstable' Jia Tolentino, author of Trick Mirror

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.

Irreverent and sincere, poignant and delightfully profane, No One Is Talking About This is at once a love letter to the infinite scroll and a meditation on love, language and human connection from one of the most original voices of our time.


AUTHOR: Patricia Lockwood was born in a trailer in Fort Wayne, Indiana, and raised in all the worst cities of the Midwest. She is the author of two poetry collections, Balloon Pop Outlaw Black and Motherland Fatherland Homelandsexuals, and the memoir Priestdaddy, which was named one of the ten best books of 2017 by the New York Times Book Review and one of the 100 best books of the 21st century by the Guardian. Lockwood's writing has appeared in the New York Times, the New Yorker, the New Republic and the London Review of Books, where she is a contributing editor. She lives in Savannah, Georgia.
