if it was about anything

“When Madeleine asked what the book was about, she was given to understand by Whitney that the idea of a book being 'about' something was exactly what this book was against, and that, if it was 'about' anything, then it was about the need to stop thinking of books as being about things. Madeleine said she was going to make coffee.”

(Jeffrey Eugenides, The Marriage Plot)
