'A masterpiece' Guardian 'I really admire and love this book' Sally Rooney 'An intellectual and emotional rollercoaster' Daily Mail 'I can't remember the last time I laughed so much reading a book' David Sedaris 'It moved me to tears' Elizabeth Day The only book shortlisted for both The Booker Prize and The Women's Prize for Fiction 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 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. It's a meditation on love, language and human connection from one of the most original voices of our time. ______________________________________________'An utterly distinctive mixture of depth, dazzling linguistic richness, anarchic wit and raw emotional candour' Rowan Williams 'One of the Best Books of 2021'Sunday Times Guardian Daily Mail Telegraph Evening Standard The Times New Statesman Red The Observer Independent Daily Telegraph
