In No One Is Talking About This Patricia Lockwood captures the online experience. The novel/memoir/auto-fiction takes us inside the mind of someone who is intimately engaged in ‘the Portal’: the sudden shifts between ideas and subjects, the brevity of thought. The second half of the book reveals the opposite of online life: the urgent, terrifying and physical stuff of life and love. When the protagonist's sister discovers that her unborn baby has a rare condition we are drawn into a moving account of love, loss and the pain of being properly alive.

We bring Patricia Lockwood through the portal to talk with our own Pip Adam about writing this astonishing book.

E rua ngā kaupapa matua o tēnei tuhinga. Ka tahi ko te ao o te tangata nōna ka noho ki runga ipurangi. Ka rua ko te ao o te tangata kāore e haere ki ringa ipurangi. Tino kounga ngā kōrero nei, nā Patricia Lockwood.
