Rooney has given us a spellbinding twenty-first-century love story, and asserted herself as one of the major young writers in the English-speaking world. - TLS

The best young novelist – indeed one of the best novelists – I’ve read in years. - Olivia Laing, New Statesman

The best book I read last year. - Nigella Lawson

Love, sex, class, work, miscommunication and melancholy are all described in prose that is somehow at once lapidary and mysterious; glittering but with the feeling of something moving like weather behind the sentences. - New Statesman Books of the Year

Rooney’s second novel is one you read in three days flat, a Tube stop-missing, escalator-reading tale . . . Rooney’s style is pure poetry, sparse and heartbreaking, and writing this three months after I finished it I find my chest still aches for the pair of them. - Evening Standard Books of the Year

Conversations with Friends:
Frances is twenty-one years old, cool-headed and observant. A student in Dublin and an aspiring writer, at night she performs spoken word with her best friend Bobbi, who used to be her girlfriend. When they are interviewed and then befriended by Melissa, a well-known journalist who is married to Nick, an actor, they enter a world of beautiful houses, raucous dinner parties and holidays in Provence, beginning a complex ménage-à-quatre.

Normal People:
Connell and Marianne grow up in the same small town in the west of Ireland, but the similarities end there. In school, Connell is popular and well-liked, while Marianne is a loner. But when the two strike up a conversation - awkward but electrifying - something life-changing begins. Normal People is a story of mutual fascination, friendship and love. It takes us from that first conversation to the years beyond, in the company of two people who try to stay apart but find they can't.
