summary

description

What is it about being online which makes it seem as if other people were writing your mind? Patricia Lockwood considers the internet’s language, its reflexive laughter and its new vehicles of consensus – and asks whether it’s possible to opt out, what our unanimity might look like in the future and if any of this is even new.

Patricia Lockwood is the author of Priestdaddy, a memoir, and two collections of poetry including Motherland, Fatherland, Homelandsexuals. She lives in Savannah, Georgia and once famously tweeted at the Paris Review, ‘so is paris any good or not’.
