Couple which are at opposite ends of the spectrum:

Feast of The Goat - Mario Vargas Llosa; very dark indeed but compelling

Texting seems utterly embeddedin the culture for anyone under 30 in the uk.

Can't remember the last time I saw a teenager who wasn't texting.

recently I took someone on in a job role and, during their induction ... they were texting!!!
