'The literary phenomenon of the decade.' - Guardian

The Sunday times bestseller shortlisted for the costa book awards 2018 (novel) & Longlisted for the man booker prize 2018 Connell and Marianne grow up in the same small town in rural Ireland. The similarities end there; they are from very different worlds. When they both earn places at Trinity College in Dublin, a connection that has grown between them lasts long into the following years. This is an exquisite love story about how a person can change another person's life - a simple yet profound realisation that unfolds beautifully over the course of the novel. It tells us how difficult it is to talk about how we feel and it tells us - blazingly - about cycles of domination, legitimacy and privilege. Alternating menace with overwhelming tenderness, Sally Rooney's second novel breathes fiction with new life

After 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.


Zusammenfassung
'The literary phenomenon of the decade.' Guardian
'The book that defined a generation.' Stylist

** Read the modern classic behind the BAFTA-winning series. **

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.
