Capturing the anxious, self-aware mood of young college grads in the aughts, Private Citizens embraces the contradictions of our new century: call it a loving satire. A gleefully rude comedy of manners. The story’s four whip-smart narrators—idealistic Cory, Internet-lurking Will, awkward Henrik, and vicious Linda—are torn between fixing the world and cannibalizing it. In boisterous prose that ricochets between humor and pain, the four estranged friends stagger through the bay area’s maze of tech startups, protestors, gentrifiers, karaoke bars, house parties, and cultish self-help seminars, washing up in each other’s lives once again

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

Private Citizens is the product of a whirring intellect with brilliance to burn…Reading Tony Tulathimutte is like watching a mad genius at work in his laboratory, conjuring the magnificent and the monstrous into life.” Anthony Marra, New York Times bestselling author
“[Private Citizens] is a comedy…that is, in all respects, emotionally engaging and more than satisfying.” New York Times Book Review
“[A] hilarious portrait of youthful self-centeredness.” Paris Review
“The first great millennial novel.” New York magazine
“In Private Citizens, Tony Tulathimutte critiques the young, West coast set while still managing to love his characters, even the fame-obsessed, even the porn-addicted, even the self-righteous start-up leaders. Each is handled with wit and tenderness.” Huffington Post
“[A] razor-sharp debut…Witty, unsparing, and unsettlingly precise, Tulathimutte empathizes with his subjects even as he (brilliantly) skewers them. A satirical portrait of privilege and disappointment with striking emotional depth.” Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
“Tulathimutte’s debut is poetic and verbose…an impressive start for an edgy new writer.” Booklist
