‘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* SHORTLISTED FOR THE BOOKER PRIZE 2021 ** SHORTLISTED FOR THE WOMEN’S PRIZE FOR FICTION 2021 ** SHORTLISTED FOR THE DYLAN THOMAS PRIZE 2022 * ______________________________________________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 WilliamsA 2021 Book of the Year: Sunday Times, Guardian, Daily Mail, Telegraph, Evening Standard, The Times, New Statesman, Red, Observer, Independent, Daily Telegraph
