Jia Tolentino

Me on the internet

New Yorker staff writer Jia Tolentino started to talk about her life in a blog when she was little, took part in a reality show as an adolescent, and, just after turning 30, her first book featured on Barack Obama’s list of favourite reads. Today she is a unique voice on the conflicts, contradictions and changes that define our times. Author of the acclaimed collection of essays Trick Mirror: Reflections on Self-Delusion (Penguin Random House, 2019) about the difficulty of seeing ourselves clearly in these times, so given to a culture that revolves around me-me-me, at “Primera Persona Indoors” Tolentino will be talking about how, thanks to gender and class debates, to construct that “I” in the often tricky and sometimes toxic net.
