This collection of essays by a New Yorker writer explores the era of the self, malleable truth, feminism, and politics. From the rise of the internet to the writer's own experiences with ecstasy and engagement with our culture's drive towards self-optimization, the essays are a fierce, clear, and humorous look at our current landscape. With a rare gift for elucidating nuance and complexity, this debut collection announces the author as an important voice for many years to come.
