  • No One Is Talking About This by Patricia Lockwood—This debut novel by Lockwood is a hilarious cultural commentary turned tragedy that embraces life in the internet age.
  • Uncanny Valley by Anna Wiener—A tech industry memoir that reveals the extravagance, aspiration, and disillusionment of Silicon Valley.
