LONGLISTED FOR THE 2018 MAN BOOKER PRIZE From the author of Conversations with Friends and winner of the 2017 Sunday Times Young Writer of the Year Award, Sally Rooney, a wondrously wise, genuinely unputdownable new novel--the quintessential coming-of-age love story for our time ...Connell Waldron is one of the most popular boys in his small-town high school. A star of the football team, an excellent student, and the class heartthrob, he has everything but money, while Marianne Sheridan--plain-looking, odd, and intensely private--is well-off, but has no friends to speak of. Despite their differences, a deep and indelible connection grows between the two teenagers, one that develops into a secret relationship. Everything changes when both Connell and Marianne are accepted to Trinity College. Suddenly Marianne is elegant and well liked, holding court with her intellectual friends, and Connell hangs at the sidelines. Throughout their years at university, Marianne and Connell circle one another, straying toward other people and relationships 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.
