Waterstones Says

One of contemporary literature’s brightest talents follows up the former Waterstones Book of the Year Normal People with an incisive and affecting dissection of the lives and loves of a quartet of young friends in Dublin and the west of Ireland.

Shortlisted for The British Book Awards 2022 Fiction Book of the Year

Alice, a novelist, meets Felix, who works in a distribution warehouse, and asks him if he’d like to travel to Rome with her. In Dublin, her best friend Eileen is getting over a break-up, and slips back into flirting with Simon, a man she has known since childhood.

Alice, Felix, Eileen and Simon are still young—but life is catching up with them. They desire each other, they delude each other, they get together, they break apart. They have sex, they worry about sex, they worry about their friendships and the world they live in. Are they standing in the last lighted room before the darkness, bearing witness to something? Will they find a way to believe in a beautiful world?

“Not enjoyable”

I had enjoyed normal people so I was excited to read this and I had preordered it. I have to say I’m disappointed in it, I found the two main characters very hard to like, and I found the emails between these... More

“A fascinating book – one which cleverly confronts much of the criticism aimed at her first two novels.”

I bought this book the night before its official publication at the book reading and signing that the author gave at Waterstones. Piccadilly and then also watched the online stream of her live event at the Southbank... More
