Product description

Marianne and Connell grew up in the same small town but worlds apart. Yet, as we follow them through their heady Trinity years, often without the language or courage to explain themselves, we see that their lives will always be intertwined. Rooney shows her incredible knack for describing the often indescribable tiny details of love, life and suffering so viscerally that it is sometimes startling. My book of the year so far from one of Ireland’s brilliant young writers.

- Recommended by Sarah-Jane Reynolds, Dubray Grafton Street

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.
