An intense and compelling read, Troll Hunting is a window into not just the mindset and motivation of trolls, but also the profound changes in the way we live and work in a post-internet world. Ginger Gorman has gained unprecedented access to trolls, even formed strange and enduring relationships with them, and conducted a comprehensive investigation into what makes them tick. We found out more behind the making of the book and heard unique experiences within the world of cyberhate.
