Reviews

Astonishing and wholly original . . . Patricia Lockwood is the voice of a generation of new writers who grew up under the constant pressures of real-time news and social media -- Namita Gokhale, Chair judge for the Dylan Thomas Prize 2022
No One is Talking About This by Patricia Lockwood is a rare wonder. The author is razor-sharp as she takes us through the absurdities of internet living, but when the narrative shifts in the second half, and her family reel from personal tragedy, I was left in bits * Douglas Stuart, Booker Prize-winning author of SHUGGIE BAIN *
I have been in headlong love with Patricia Lockwood's hilarious and subversive mind since her memoir Priestdaddy, but her first novel, No One Is Talking About This, sent me reeling. Everything about this book is testament to her wicked genius * Lauren Groff, Red Magazine, Books of the Year 2021 *
I finally read No One Is Talking About This after everyone recommending it to me all year, and I'm so, so happy I did. Please, please read this book -- Lorde
Lockwood is an incontrovertibly gifted writer. Her sentences are routinely surprising, her voice a startling agglomeration of poetic clarity and hectic comedy * Guardian *
Often filthy and irreverent, sometimes extremely funny, and ultimately surprisingly poignant, No One Is Talking About This offers more proof of Lockwood's particular genius * Telegraph *
A work that feels intensely relevant to our fractured time . . . Wonderfully intricate * Independent *
Lockwood has paid attention more closely than perhaps any other human on earth to what it's like to be alive right now * Vanity Fair *
Astonishing . . . No One Is Talking About This will frighten you, implicate you, and scrape your guts out, in the best way possible * Esquire *
Lockwood's conceit is smart, her prose original, hugely entertaining and witty . . . It is a story, simply, about love, selfless and delighted * New Yorker *
A smart and sharp book that is both addictive and deeply unsettling * Sarah Hughes, i *
What begins as an ironical story about irony becomes an intimate and moving portrait of love and grief. In this way, a novel that had been toying with the digital surface of modern life finds the tender heart pumping away beneath it all * Wall Street Journal *
Reading Patricia Lockwood feels like looking through a kaleidoscope built by a mischievous sorcerer - the world is suddenly rearranged in fragments that are cosmic, wondrous, humiliating, and profane. No One Is Talking About This is a furiously original novel, alive and unstable; the book builds to a reminder of how devastation and connection produce each other, endlessly and surprisingly, both on the internet and in human places that our shared digital consciousness can never reach -- Jia Tolentino
Lockwood is a phenomenal writer who is a keen observer of . . . the fragility of the human heart -- Roxane Gay
Hilarious, affectionate and deeply-felt. There is nothing that Lockwood - and I don't say this lightly - can't do -- Nicole Flattery, author of SHOW THEM A GOOD TIME
A delightfully weird look at our service to the internet (fitting in a year that gave us the "doomscroll") and human connection and intersection * Stylist *
A formidably gifted writer who can do pretty much anything she pleases * New York Times Book Review *
The first half is a series of unbelievably accurate and funny and insightful takes on what it means to live in the internet of the modern age, and the second half swivels and becomes a kind of personal, family dynamic ... It moved me to tears -- Elizabeth Day
The poet and essayist turns her hand to fiction in this fragmentary tale that addresses urgent questions about the absurdity of the digital world * Harper's Bazaar *
An eagerly awaited novel . . . about a woman whose life is overwhelmed by the internet * The Times *
Set to be one of 2021's biggest books . . . riveting * Daily Mail *
I really admire and love this book. Patricia Lockwood is a completely singular talent and this is her best, funniest, weirdest, most affecting work yet -- Sally Rooney
