While we may not be able to meet in person right now, book clubs are still a great way to connect socially and stay engaged! QueerKPL will be hosting this book club as part of our QueerKPL Media Club.
We will be discussing The Subtweet by Vivek Shraya. This title is also available as an ebook from Download Library and an audiobook from Hoopla Digital.
Celebrated multidisciplinary artist Vivek Shraya's second novel is a no-holds-barred examination of the music industry, social media, and making art in the modern era, shining a light on the promise and peril of being seen.
Indie musician Neela Devaki has built a career writing the songs she wants to hear but nobody else is singing. When one of Neela's songs is covered by internet artist RUK-MINI and becomes a viral sensation, the two musicians meet and a transformative friendship begins. But before long, the systemic pressures that pit women against one another begin to bear down on Neela and RUK-MINI, stirring up self-doubt and jealousy. With a single tweet, their friendship implodes, a career is destroyed, and the two women find themselves at the centre of an internet firestorm.
