This is a book about the incentives that shape us, and about how hard it is to see ourselves clearly through a culture that revolves around the self. Tolentino is a staff writer at The New Yorker. Raised in Texas, she studied at the University of Virginia before serving in Kyrgyzstan in the Peace Corps and receiving her MFA in fiction from the University of Michigan.
