9780062379849: Love and Miss Communication: A Novel

Could you turn off Facebook? Tune out of Twitter? In Elyssa Friedland's debut novel, which combines the sophistication of J. Courtney Sullivan and the wit of Jennifer Weiner, high-powered attorney Evie Rosen does just that…and discovers that life is more than a series of updates. This is a most timely story—at turns wickedly funny and delicately poignant—that begs the question: what are we missing while our eyes are glued to our smartphones?

After Evie is unceremoniously dumped from her white-shoe Manhattan law firm for overuse of social media on company hours, called out by a blind date for Googling him, and—most catastrophically of all—shocked by her ex’s wedding photos on Facebook, she decides it’s time to put down the Blackberry for good (better than stowing it in her underwear—she’s done that too!). What will life be like with no searches, no status updates, no texts, no tweets, no pins, and no posts?

What Evie discovers is a fresh start for real conversations and fewer distractions. For living in the moment, even if the moments are sometimes heartbreakingly difficult. By unplugging, Evie may just find love and a new direction when she least expects it.

Product Description:

This unforgettable debut novel asks us to look up from our screens and out at the world…and to imagine what life would be like with no searches, no status updates, no texts, no Tweets, no pins, and no posts

Evie Rosen has had enough. She's tired of the partners at her law firm e-mailing her at all hours of the night. The thought of another online date makes her break out in a cold sweat. She's over the clever hashtags and the endless selfies. So when her career hits a surprising roadblock and her heart is crushed by Facebook, Evie decides it's time to put down her smartphone for good. (Beats stowing it in her underwear—she's done that too!)

And that's when she discovers a fresh start for real conversations, fewer distractions, and living in the moment, even if the moments are heartbreakingly difficult. Babies are born; marriages teeter; friendships are tested. Evie just may find love and a new direction when she least expects it, but she also learns that just because you unplug your phone doesn't mean you can unplug from life.
