Product description

Review

"[Rooney] has invented a sensibility entirely of her own: sunny and sharp, free of artifice but overflowing with wisdom and intensity. . . . The novel touches on class, politics, and power dynamics and brims with the sparky, witty conversation that Rooney's fans will recognize."--Vogue

"Rooney is a tough girl; her papercut-sharp sensibility is much more akin to writers like Rachel Kushner, Mary Gaitskill, and the pre-Manhattan Beach Jennifer Egan. . . . Normal People is a nuanced and flinty love story about two young people who 'get' each other, despite class differences and the interference of their own vigorous personal demons. But honestly, Sally Rooney could write a novel about bath mats and I'd still read it. She's that good and that singular a writer."--Maureen Corrigan, NPR's Fresh Air

"[Rooney] has written two fresh and accessible novels. . . . There is so much to say about Rooney's fiction--in my experience, when people who've read her meet they tend to peel off into corners to talk."--Dwight Garner, The New York Times

"[Rooney's] two carefully observed and gentle comedies of manners . . . are tender portraits of Irish college students. . . . Remarkably precise--she captures meticulously the way a generation raised on social data thinks and talks."--New York Review of Books

"Normal People tackles millennial concerns with nineteenth-century wit . . . the millennial generation would no doubt be happy to accept her as its spokesperson were she so inclined."--Elle

"I'm transfixed by the way Rooney works, and I'm hardly the only one . . . like any confident couturier, she's slicing the free flow of words into the perfect shape. . . . She writes about tricky commonplace things (text messages, sex) with a familiarity no one else has."--The Paris Review

"Funny and intellectually agile . . . [combines] deft social observation--especially of shifts of power between individuals and groups--with acute feeling . . . [Rooney is] a master of the kind of millennial deadpan that appears to skewer a whole life and personality in a sentence or two."--Harper's Magazine

"Beautifully observed . . . crackles with vivid insight into what it means to be young and in love today."--Esquire

"I went into a tunnel with this book and didn't want to come out. Absolutely engrossing and surprisingly heart-breaking with more depth, subtlety, and insight than any one novel deserves. Young love is a subject of much scorn, but Rooney understands the cataclysmic effects our youth has on the people we become. She has restored not only love's dignity, but also its significance."--Stephanie Danler, author of Sweetbitter

"Masterfully done. The quality of Rooney's writing, particularly in the psychologically wrought sex scenes, cannot be understated as she brilliantly provides a window into her protagonists' true selves."--Bookpage (starred review)

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.
