Shortlisted for the Booker Prize 2021
This is a story about a life lived in two halves.
It’s about what happens when real life collides with the increasing absurdity of a world accessed through a screen.
It’s about where we go when existential threats loom, and the high stakes of reality that claim 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.
