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.
 

No One Is Talking About This : Shortlisted for the Booker Prize 2021 and the Women's Prize for Fiction 2021 - Patricia Lockwood

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.
