    DescriptionWhat will the future make of us?In one of the greatest cities in the world, billionaires shed apartments like last season's fashion trends while the country's economy turns inside out. Meanwhile, the young and careless go on as they always have, getting laid and getting laid off, falling in and falling out of love, and trying to navigate the strange world they traffic in. Choire Sicha's debut piece of narrative nonfiction, told in a scientifictive voice, follows a man named John and his circle of friends, lovers, and enemies while cataloguing artifacts of our very recent every day as if it were already forgotten: the Internet, complex financial markets, credit cards, pop stars, microplane cheese graters, and sex apps.

    Review quote
    "Sicha's uncanny, absurdist reduction is more than just a fun-to-read ruse: "Very Recent History" shames you, the reader, for losing sight, on a day-to-day basis, of just who is controlling your world... [VRH] is exultant in a way no mere clever premise can be."--Page-Turner, New Yorker.com
