From 'a formidably gifted writer who can do pretty much anything she pleases' (the New York Times Book Review), a classic novel for our times about what it feels like to live and think in the digital world 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. Who are we serving? Are we all just going to keep doing this until we die? When she receives two texts from her mother - 'something has gone wrong' and 'how soon can you get here?' - the woman travels across the country to the side of her pregnant sister, whose baby has been diagnosed with a terminal illness. As real life and its stakes collide with the increasing absurdity of the portal, she confronts a world that seems to contain both an abundance of proof for the existence of goodness 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 the voice of a generation.
