'Extraordinary' Naoise Dolan 'Seriously good' Louise Nealon PICKED AS 'ONE TO WATCH' FOR 2022 BY IRISH TIMES, STYLIST AND IRISH INDEPENDENT Dublin student life is ending for Sophie and her friends. Theyve got everything figured out, and Sophie feels left behind as they all start to go their separate ways. Shes overshadowed by her best friend Grace. Shes been in love with Finn for as long as shes known him. And shes about to meet Rory, who's suddenly available to her online. At a party, what was already unstable completely falls apart and Sophie finds herself obsessively scrolling social media, waiting for something (anything) to happen. None of This Is Serious is about the uncertainty and absurdity of being alive today. Its about balancing the real world with the online, and the vulnerabilities in yourself, your relationships, your body. At its heart, this is a novel about the friendships strong enough to withstand anything.

“My phone is a living creature in my hand, my notifications its heartbeat... scrolling helps me to shut out my gnawing thoughts. It keeps alive the possibility that there might be an answer on the next thread.“ Sophie is struggling to find her place post-college, as her friends and sibling seem to get on with new lives. An interesting, and sometimes raw, look at contemporary challenges for young Irish women.
