From one of the Observer's Rising Stars of 2017, a high-risk, highbrow and intimate novel – and one of the most anticipated works of fiction this year.
Conversations with Friends is about Frances, Bobbi, Nick and Melissa, four characters who ask each other endless questions. As their relationships unfold, in person and online, they discuss sex and friendship, art and literature, politics and gender, and, of course, one another. Twenty-one-year-old Frances is at the heart of it all, bringing us this tale of a complex menage-a-quatre and her affair with Nick, an older married man.
You can read Conversations with Friends as a romantic comedy, or you can read it as a feminist text. You can read it as a book about infidelity, about the pleasures and difficulties of intimacy, or about how our minds think about our bodies. However you choose to read it, it is an unforgettable novel about the possibility of love.
'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)
'Sally Rooney is a writer going all the way to the top. Conversations with Friends features the twenty-first century Irish descendents of Salinger's guileless wiseasses brought to life in prose as taut and coolly poised as early Bret Easton Ellis.' (Colin Barrett, author of Young Skins)
'Written with such precision and perceptiveness, full of arid humour and reckless despair, a novel of spine-tingling salience.' (Sara Baume, author of Spill Simmer Falter Wither)
'Forensically smart and pin-sharp witty, this is a book to cherish and a writer to fall in love with.' (Thomas Morris, author of We Don't Know What We're Doing)
