NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER - From the celebrated author of Conversations with Friends comes a stunning novel about the transformative power of relationships (People), hailed as a masterpiece, pure and simple (Minneapolis Star Tribune). Among the vast cohort of new millennial novel...ists, none are connecting with readers as intimately, or generating as much excitement, as Sally Rooney. --Entertainment Weekly WINNER OF THE AN POST IRISH BOOK AWARD - WINNER OF THE COSTA NOVEL AWARD - LONGLISTED FOR: THE MAN BOOKER PRIZE - THE DYLAN THOMAS PRIZE - THE WOMEN'S PRIZE FOR FICTION - THE RATHBONES FOLIO PRIZE - THE KERRY GROUP IRISH NOVEL OF THE YEAR AWARD At school Connell and Marianne pretend not to know each other. He's popular and well-adjusted, star of the school football team, while she is lonely, proud, and intensely private. But when Connell comes to pick his mother up from her job at Marianne's house, a strange and indelible connection grows between the two teenagers--one they are determined to conceal. A year later, they're both studying at Trinity College in Dublin. Marianne has found her feet in a new social world while Connell hangs at the sidelines, shy and uncertain. Throughout their years at university, Marianne and Connell circle one another, straying toward other people and possibilities but always magnetically, irresistibly drawn back together. And as she veers into self-destruction and he begins to search for meaning elsewhere, each must confront how far they are willing to go to save the other. Sally Rooney brings her brilliant psychological acuity and perfectly spare prose to a story that explores the subtleties of class, the electricity of first love, and the complex entanglements of family and friendship. Praise for Normal People [Rooney] has been hailed as the first great millennial novelist for her stories of love and late capitalism . . . [she writes] some of the best dialogue I've read. --The New Yorker Arguably the buzziest novel of the season, Sally Rooney's elegant sophomore effort . . . is a worthy successor to Conversations With Friends. Here, again, she unflinchingly explores class dynamics and young love with wit and nuance. --The Wall Street Journal, 12 Best Books of Spring Keenly observed, deeply perceptive, and psychologically acute, Normal People brims with disarming insights into how men and women wrestle with sex, class, popularity, and young love. --Esquire, Best Books to Read This Spring
