Normal People is a brilliant story that explores the subtleties of class, first love, and the complex entanglements of family and friendship. Through their school and university years, Marianne and Connell circle each other, moving towards other people and possibilities, but always drawing irresistibly back together. As Marianne veers into self-destruction and Connell begins to search for meaning elsewhere, each must confront how far they are willing to go to save the other. Sally Rooney's 2019 novel provides brilliant psychological acuity and perfect prose. The book won the Costa Novel Award and was described by the Guardian newspaper as, "The literary phenomenon of the decade."
