SHORTLISTED FOR THE BOOKER PRIZE 2021 SHORTLISTED FOR THE WOMEN'S PRIZE FOR FICTION 2021 ______________________________________________ 'A literary star' Guardian 'An intellectual and emotional rollercoaster' Daily Mail 'I can't remember the last time I laughed so much reading a book' David Sedaris 'It moved me to tears' Elizabeth Day 'Patricia Lockwood is a completely singular talent' Sally Rooney 'Takes us on a complex journey' Financial Times 'A formidably gifted writer' New York Times Book Review ______________________________________________ This is a story about a life lived in two halves. It's about what happens when real life collides with the world accessed through a screen. It's about where we go when existential threats loom and high-stakes reality claims us back. It's about living in world that contains 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 a meditation on love, language and human connection from one of the most original voices of our time.
