About the Book
During the pandemic shutdown, when we couldn’t see or be with each other in the flesh, we had to settle for interacting with digital images of each other via apps like Zoom. But for many of us those apps were more alienating than comforting. So far from really being together, we were never even really looking at each other. We were looking at screens, pixelated by some algorithm to project an insubstantial semblance of ourselves.
