Shortlisted for the International Dylan Thomas Prize 2018

Longlisted for the Desmond Elliott Prize 2018

Winner of the 2017 Sunday Times/Peters Fraser Dunlop Young Writer of the Year Award

Frances, Bobbi, Nick and Melissa ask each other endless questions. As their relationships unfold, in person and online, they discuss sex and friendship, art and literature, politics and gender, and, of course, one another.

Twenty-one-year-old Frances is at the heart of it all, bringing us this tale of a complex menage-a-quatre and her affair with Nick, an older married man.

You can read Conversations with Friends as a romantic comedy, or you can read it as a feminist text.

You can read it as a book about infidelity, about the pleasures and difficulties of intimacy, or about how our minds think about our bodies.

However you choose to read it, it is an unforgettable novel about the possibility of love.

Described by the New York Times as a ‘new kind of adultery novel’, Conversations with Friends is also sharp, bitingly funny fiction that digs deep into identity and communication; slicing into the divide between who we are, and who we present ourselves to be. Hooking a reader from the first page, this modern love story about growing up and the infinite complexities of intimacy is a masterful debut from a major new talent.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'It is a narrative of self-discovery, as you might expect from the protagonist’s age. But that is about the only expectation that isn’t subverted in this tireless, probing and, above all, highly intelligent novel.' - The Sunday Times
