Connell and Marianne grow up in the same small town in rural Ireland. 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. This is an exquisite love story about how a person can change another person's life - a simple yet profound realisation that unfolds beautifully over the course of the novel. It tells us how difficult it is to talk about how we feel and it tells us - blazingly - about cycles of domination, legitimacy and privilege. Alternating menace with overwhelming tenderness, Sally Rooney's second novel

Sally Rooney (County Mayo, Irlanda, 1991) va estudiar anglès al Trinity College de Dublín i té un màster de literatura nord-americana. A la universitat, Rooney va arribar a ser la guanyadora de les lligues de debat i oratòria d'àmbit europeu. Els seus textos s'han publicat a Granta, The New Yorker, The Dublin Review, Winter Pages i The Stinging Fly, revista a la qual es va incorporar com a editora el 2017. Rooney va ser escollida l'any 2017 per The Observer (The Guardian) com un dels talents més prometedors del moment. Gent normal, la seva segona novel·la, va ser el llibre més elogiat de l'any per la crítica del Regne Unit segons The Bookseller, i el 2018 va obtenir el premi a millor novel·la irlandesa del 2018 i el Costa Book Award 2018.
