NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • LONGLISTED FOR THE MAN BOOKER PRIZE • “A stunning novel about the transformative power of relationships” (People) from Sally Rooney, the author of Conversations with Friends and “a master of the literary page-turner” (J. Courtney Sullivan).
 
COMING TO HULU IN 2020 • “Fresh and accessible . . . 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
 
At school Connell and Marianne pretend not to know each other. He’s popular and well-adjusted, star of the school football team, while she is lonely, proud, and intensely private. But when Connell comes to pick his mother up from her job at Marianne’s house, a strange and indelible connection grows between the two teenagers—one they are determined to conceal.

A year later, they’re both studying at Trinity College in Dublin. Marianne has found her feet in a new social world while Connell hangs at the sidelines, shy and uncertain. Throughout their years at university, Marianne and Connell circle one another, straying toward other people and possibilities but always magnetically, irresistibly drawn back together. And as she veers into self-destruction and he begins to search for meaning elsewhere, each must confront how far they are willing to go to save the other.

Sally Rooney brings her brilliant psychological acuity and perfectly spare prose to a story that explores the subtleties of class, the electricity of first love, and the complex entanglements of family and friendship.

Frances is a coolheaded and darkly observant young woman, vaguely pursuing a career in writing while studying in Dublin. Her best friend is the beautiful and endlessly self-possessed Bobbi. At a local poetry performance one night, they meet a well-known photographer, and as the girls are then gradually drawn into her world, Frances is reluctantly impressed by the older woman’s sophisticated home and handsome husband, Nick. But however amusing Frances and Nick’s flirtation seems at first, it begins to give way to a strange—and then painful—intimacy.

Written with gemlike precision and marked by a sly sense of humor, Conversations with Friends is wonderfully alive to the pleasures and dangers of youth, and the messy edges of female friendship

SHORTLISTED FOR THE INTERNATIONAL DUBLIN LITERARY AWARD

“Sharp, funny, thought-provoking . . . a really great portrait of two young women as they’re figuring out how to be adults.”—Celeste Ng, “Late Night with Seth Meyers Podcast”

“The dialogue is superb, as are the insights about communicating in the age of electronic devices. Rooney has a magical ability to write scenes of such verisimilitude that even when little happens they’re suspenseful.”—Curtis Sittenfeld, The Week

“Rooney has the gift of imbuing everyday life with a sense of high stakes . . . a novel of delicious frictions.”—New York

“A writer of rare confidence, with a lucid, exacting style . . . One wonderful aspect of Rooney’s consistently wonderful novel is the fierce clarity with which she examines the self-delusion that so often festers alongside presumed self-knowledge. . . . But Rooney’s natural power is as a psychological portraitist. She is acute and sophisticated about the workings of innocence; the protagonist of this novel about growing up has no idea just how much of it she has left to do.”—Alexandra Schwartz, The New Yorker

“This book. This book. I read it in one day. I hear I’m not alone.”—Sarah Jessica Parker (Instagram)

"Az év regénye." Times
Bámulatos és bölcs fejlődésregény, egy magasfeszültséggel lesújtó első szerelem története.
Az iskolában Connell és Marianne szinte kerülik egymást. Conell igazi közösségi ember, az iskolai focicsapat sztárja, Marianne magányos, büszke és visszahúzódó lány. Amikor Connell elmegy a Marianne-ék házában dolgozó édesanyjáért, különös, megmásíthatatlan kapcsolat jön létre a két tinédzser között, amelyet eltökélten titkolnak. Érettségi után mindketten ugyanarra az egyetemre kerülnek, és a későbbi években sem sodródnak el egymás mellől. Kapcsolatuk egyre összetettebbé és ellentmondásosabbá válik, kimondatlan feszültségekkel telítődik.
Sally Rooney szűkszavú, visszafogott prózájában briliáns pszichológiai érzékkel, olykor kegyetlen, máskor gyengédebb jelenetekben mutatja be a vidéki kisvárosból származó, eltérő vagyoni helyzetű két fiatal társadalmi beágyazottságát, családi hátterét és baráti körét.
Sally Rooney Dublinban él. A Normális emberek a második regénye, amelyet jelölték a 2018-as Man Booker-díjra.

El gran debut de la joven Sally Rooney con una de las novelas de ficción más esperadas de 2018. Una historia fresca sobre el amor y contra las etiquetas en las relaciones.

Tras recitar sus poemas en una velada literaria en Dublín, Frances y Bobbi conocen a Melissa, una atractiva escritora que quiere publicar un reportaje sobre ellas. Estas dos universitarias que en el pasado fueron pareja se verán atraídas hacia ella y su marido Nick: un matrimonio acomodado que se acerca a la cuarentena y con el que terminarán formando un complejo ménage à quatre.

Ambientada en la bohemia artística irlandesa, esta historia de amores libres y relaciones ambiguas ofrece un retrato honesto de una generación que rechaza las etiquetas impuestas.

Entre presentaciones de libros, estrenos teatrales y vacaciones en la Bretaña francesa, las conversaciones de los personajes convierten el debut de Sally Rooney en una novela de ideas marcada por unos diálogos ocurrentes y un hábil sentido del humor. La autora indaga en las delicadas crueldades de la interacción humana en una obra inteligente sobre la amistad, el deseo y los celos.

Mientras sus personajes descubren el poder que tienen sobre los otros, Rooney articula una adictiva historia sobre el funcionamiento de la inocencia, el impacto de la infidelidad y el espejismo del libre albedrío.

Conversaciones entre amigos ha situado a Rooney como una de las voces más prometedoras de su generación. Una obra aguda y reveladora que es a la vez una novela de iniciación, una comedia sobre el amor y un alegato feminista.

Christian Lorentzen, New York Magazine

«Esta joven de 25 años dejó su trabajo en un restaurante... y escribió una novela que dio inicio a una guerra de subastas.»
Alice O'Keeffe, The Guardian

«En este debut agudo y revelador, Rooney ofrece una perspectiva sin remordimientos sobre los caprichos en las relaciones, un tratado sobre la vida matrimonial, el impacto de la infidelidad, las ramificaciones de las propias acciones, y cómo la persona con la que uno escoge estar puede marcar la propia individualidad.»
Publishers Weekly

Lisa McInerney, autor de Los pecados gloriosos (ganador del Baileys Women's Prize for Fiction)

«Este libro es notable porque insiste en la necesidad de complicarse la vida y también en el derecho al placer, tanto para los personajes como para el lector.»
Daily Telegraph

«Es un análisis brillantemente escrito sobre ese momento en la vida en que descubres cuánto poder puedes tener sobre otras personas, y aun así decides utilizarlo mal.»
Stylist

«Combinando una agudísima e irónica visión y una sinceridad que derrite el corazón, esta novela es una clase magistral de tono narrativo que me dejó desesperado por leer cualquier cosa que Rooney escriba a partir de ahora.»
Metro

«Su voz tiene claridad y seguridad, y emerge completamente madurada.»
Daily Telegraph review

Connell og Marianne er vokset op i den samme lille landsby i Irland, men det er også det eneste, de har til fælles. Marianne bor i den hvide palævilla med den lange indkørsel, Connells mor gør rent hos Mariannes familie. Connell er populær og afholdt i gymnasiet, Marianne er en enspænder, og hun ved af smertefuld erfaring, at det er bedst at undgå de andre fra skolen. Men da Connell og Marianne en dag indleder en samtale i Mariannes køkken – der på en gang er kejtet og inciterende – bliver det begyndelsen på en kærlighedshistorie, der kommer til at vare mange år frem og ændre deres liv for altid.

Normale Mennesker er en udsøgt kærlighedsfortælling om, hvor stor betydning ét menneske kan have for et andet menneskes liv. Om hvor svært det kan være at udtrykke, hvad man føler, og om hvordan fascination, venskab, kærlighed, privilegier og magtforhold kan ændre sig igen og igen over tid.

Pressen skriver:

»Sally Rooneys lysende udforskning af ung kærlighed bør blive en klassiker. Frisk som et æble, favnende som få, og fuld af tiltro til at modgang kan overvindes ... ’Normale mennesker’ er en gave. Ingen der læser den, vil kunne undgå at blive løftet af den.«
****** – Politiken

»Det er en af de mest rørende romaner, jeg længe har læst... En smuk historie, der borer sig ind i hjertet og bliver siddende længe efter endt læsning.«
****** – Søndag

»Det kolossale isbjerg, denne kærlighedsroman er under vandoverfladen, yder forfatterindens succesdebut al ære og retfærdighed og kommer givetvis til at stå side om side med nye, danske forfattere som Theis Ørntoft og Caroline Albertine Minor på fremtidens klassikerhylde.«
**** – Berlingske
