Publisher's Summary

A razor-sharp short story about anonymity, mutual deception, and the perils of overexposure - debut fiction by Jia Tolentino, the New York Times bestselling author of Trick Mirror.

With the pandemic looming, a listless social media editor accepts a job working for her former college friend Seraphina. A popular Instagram influencer, the subject of obsessive message-board surveillance, and a newly minted Karen of the Day, Seraphina is living out 2020 in the luxury of her “ultimate self-quarantine.” As the year escalates into upheaval and chaos, both women try, in increasingly secretive and complicated ways, to maintain the upper hand.

Jia Tolentino’s I Would Be Doing This Anyway is part of Currency, a compounding collection of stories about wealth, class, competition, and collapse. If time is money, deposit here with interest. Read or listen in a single sitting.
