'The mobile phone has changed our ways of waiting and worrying. It has abolished the poetry of railway stations, driven the soul from railway platforms; we no longer feel that anxious rush when the passengers start to get out. We are secure in the knowledge that if the person we're expecting had a problem, we would have got a call. But technology can only move the emotions around, not get rid of them...'

Acclaimed French novelist Philippe Delerm brings a Parisian sensibility, full of irony and literary wit, to mediatized daily life as we all know it.

Translated by Eden Liddelow
