Cover TextAfter the critical triumph of "Conversations With Friends", the youngest ever recipient of the PFD/"Sunday Times" Young Writer of the Year Award presents in "Normal People" a love story taking place between two students at Trinity College in Dublin who are from the same town but essentially different worlds. Themes of domination, legitimacy and privilege are addressed through their story in a tone of alternating compassion and menace.
SummaryIt's a deeply political novel, just as it's also a novel about love and about how difficult it is to speak and how difficult it is to change.

Content/Review

PrefaceThe highly anticipated second novel from the most talked-about novelist in years.
Sally Rooney set the books world buzzing with her debut Conversations With Friends; Normal People is a girl-meets-boy story with a difference, interrogating the difficulties of sincere communication in a complicated, post-ironic world. It's even more unusual and assured than her first book.
