“I really admire and love this book. Patricia Lockwood is a completely singular talent and [No One is Talking About This] is her best, funniest, weirdest, most affecting work yet.” – Sally Rooney

Patricia Lockwood is a poet and the author of the memoir Priestdaddy, an extraordinarily funny account of growing up the daughter of the most singular Catholic priest in America. Lockwood is a regular contributor to the London Review of Books, and has written on Nabokov, John Updike, Lucia Berlin, Joan Didion, the Internet, and more, suffusing her book reviews with her characteristic wit and analytic breadth. She also has a vast following on Twitter, which regularly features her Internet-famous cat, Miette. Lockwood is the author of the two poetry collections Balloon Pop Outlaw Black and Motherland Fatherland Homelandsexuals. Her forthcoming first novel, No One is Talking About This, reckons with the feeling of being eternally online, unable to shut off the feed that keeps on scrolling, no matter what we do to stop it.

Sheila Heti is the author of eight books of fiction and non-fiction, including the novels Motherhood,  How Should a Person Be? and Ticknor, and the story collection, The Middle Stories. She was named one of “The New Vanguard” by The New York Times; a list of fifteen women writers from around the world who are “shaping the way we read and write fiction in the 21st century.” Her play, All Our Happy Days are Stupid, had sold-out runs in New York and Toronto, and she is currently developing a new play called The Dug Out. Her new novel, Pure Colour, will be published in January 2022.

One of Books Inc.’s favorite aspects of being booksellers is getting the chance to welcome and host hundreds of authors a year, from house-hold names to local, debut authors and we look forward to continuing to provide the Bay Area with “The Experience You Can’t Download” in our stores when we can assure authors and guests that it is safe to do so. In the meantime, we are working on an exciting list of virtual events for both adults and children and we look forward to exploring this new format with you.

Sales equate success, and as with in-store events, booksales made from an independent bookstore benefit the author, publisher, and lead to future event bookings. Please help us keep the Bay Area the wonderful literary hub that it is by supporting your local Books Inc.
