SALLY ROONEY - NORMAL PEOPLE — IN CONVERSATION WITH LILY MEYER — AT POLITICS AND PROSE AT UNION MARKET
Thursday, April 18, 2019 • 7 PM to 8 PM
Rooney was hailed as the writer of the millennial generation for her first novel, Conversations with Friends, a fresh and astute portrayal of young people grappling with the challenges of the twenty-first century. Showcasing her skills as a “psychological portraitist,” her eagerly awaited second novel—winner of the prestigious Costa Novel Award and longlisted for the Man Booker—is a deft exploration of the relationship between Connell and Marianne. With well-paced sentences and astonishing insight, Rooney charts the uncertain couple from high school through their years at Trinity College and after, tracing their unbreakable connection through changing circumstances, including Marianne’s shifts from introversion to confidence to self-destruction. Rooney will be in conversation with Lily Meyer, writer, translator, and critic for NPR Books, The Atlantic, and others.
