Brown Bag Books

no one is talking about this - Patricia Lockwood


'OH YES HUNNY' as the protagonist may have said to a photo of a young Stalin. And that's how I feel about this book, a story about someone (everyone?), being 'extremely online' and becoming famous for it, exposing the absurdities of our online 'relationships.' It's a story about ‘US.’ Fantastic in its humor and en point observations. *It won the Booker Prize in 2021 so I didn't really need to say all that, but I wanted to. Another favorite read this year. The language is daring and beautiful, if you ike Rachel Cusk's style, you will probably like Lockwood's too. Like new, hardback copy from the U.K.
