Connell and Marianne grow up in the same small town. 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. An exquisite love story alternating menace with overwhelming tenderness, Sally Rooney's second novel breathes fiction with new life.
