We ARE Talking About This

Welcome to our podcast!

Let us talk about what no one is talking about: No One Is Talking About This, Patricia Lockwood’s Booker Prize Nominated novel. Over the past few months, we have dived into this unique story of a woman living in the modern world of technology. We found that this is a story unlike any other, with an interesting connection to our own lives.  

Lockwood’s Novel is rooted in drawing out the thousands of memes, references and thoughts that exist in our minds and putting them onto paper. It reflects how the focus of our lives has slowly shifted from what is around us to what is online. Her distinctive writing style gives the novel a unique feel and is crucial to her overall theme. The fragmented lines of thought and random hashtags train the reader to think twice before absorbing information.  

Lockwood’s novel makes a statement about authenticity. Lockwood pushes readers to reconnect with themselves and separate social media’s beliefs from their own. This message is one that is quite common in today’s novels, but one that is presented to the reader in a completely unique manor. Tessa, Izzy and Suleni break down Lockwood’s novel and then piece it together. Listen below to 21st century honors English students dive headfirst into modern literature.
