Join Sally Rooney, author of the critically-acclaimed Conversations with Friends
, on 6th September as she speaks to writer, editor and critic Lara Feigel about Normal People
, an exquisite love story about how one person can change another person's life and how difficult it can be to talk about how we feel.
Normal People follows Connell and Marianne, who 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. Alternating menace with overwhelming tenderness, Sally Rooney's second novel breathes fiction with new life.
