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.

'The literary phenomenon of the decade.' - Guardian

Klappentext

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
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.
