I hear I’m not alone.’ – Sarah Jessica Parker (Instagram)’Brilliant, funny and startling.’ Guardian’I really like Conversations with Friends. I like the tone [Rooney] takes when she’s writing. I think it’s like being inside someone’s mind.’ – Taylor Swift’A sharp, darkly funny comment on modern relationships.’ Sunday TelegraphFrances is twenty-one years old, cool-headed and observant. A student in Dublin and an aspiring writer, at night she performs spoken word with her best friend Bobbi, who used to be her girlfriend. When they are interviewed and then befriended by Melissa, a well-known journalist who is married to Nick, an actor, they enter a world of beautiful houses, raucous dinner parties and holidays in Provence, beginning a complex ménage-à-quatre. But when Frances and Nick get unexpectedly closer, the sharply witty and emotion-averse Frances is forced to honestly confront her own vulnerabilities for the first time.FROM THE AUTHOR OF NORMAL PEOPLE, THE BOOK OF THE HIT TV SERIES, NOW AVAILABLE ON THE BBC
Review
A novelist to watch: An addictive debut, with nods to
Tender is the Night, heralds a bright new talent ―
Sunday Times

A sharp, darkly funny comment on modern relationships. Required reading. ―
Sunday Telegraph

An addictive, funny and truthful first novel about love and literature. ―
Metro

A dazzling new talent. ―
Mail on Sunday

This is a novel to set beside Lena Dunham’s
Girls, Phoebe Waller-Bridge’s
Fleabag, Noah Baumbach’s
Frances Ha . . . I can’t wait to see what Rooney serves up next. ―
Sunday Times

Fearless, sensual writing . . . A dynamic debut novel about the messy, overlapping relationships between four captivating characters ―
Irish Times

I love this novel . . . A contemporary love story so powerful, graceful and honest it left me reeling . . . It is, by turns, astonishing, heart-rending and perfect; there’s not a word out of place. — Luke Kennard, author of ‘Transition’

Fascinating, ferocious and shrewd. Sally Rooney has the sharpest eye for all of the most delicate cruelties of human interaction. — Lisa McInerney, author of The Glorious Heresies

So good I felt something akin to grief the moment I finished it . . . Glimmer[s] with humour, compassion, insight and truth . . . Rooney shares with Plath a knack for particularising a feminine consciousness, and this novel is the best I’ve read on what it means to be young and female right now. ―
Daily Mail

A book that will appeal to anyone interested in friendship, jealousy, the politics of love (so, everyone?). It is an intelligent and moving novel, a brilliantly accurate portrayal of what it is to be a young woman. ―
The Pool

I really like her book
Conversations with Friends. I like the tone she takes when she’s writing. I think it’s like being inside someone’s mind. — Taylor Swift
