‘Rooney... has undoubtedly delivered one of the best novels of the year’ - The Express
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.
