Can a dog be twins?

No One is Talking About This by Patricia Lockwood is a novel about grief and being extremely online. After a woman achieves celebrity for a breakout post (“can a dog be twins”), she travels the world giving lectures about the “portal.” The second half of the book sees the collision of the character’s online and offline lives as she deals with a family tragedy. The novel caught me off guard when irony melted into sincerity and I spent the last chapter alternating between laughing and crying. Recommended for Lydia Davis fans and people who spend too much time on Twitter. You might know Lockwood’s internet famous cat, Miette.
