At our June book club, we'll be discussing "Normal People" by Sally Rooney. Called "the first great millennial novelist" by The New Yorker and "the literary phenomenon of the decade" by The Guardian, Irish prodigy Sally Rooney's 2019 release is already generating lots of praise:

"I'm transfixed by the way Rooney works, and I'm hardly the only one . . . like any confident couturier, she's slicing the free flow of words into the perfect shape. . . . She writes about tricky commonplace things (text messages, sex) with a familiarity no one else has." --The Paris Review

"In outline it's a simple story, but Rooney tells it with bravura intelligence, wit, and delicacy . . . Absolutely enthralling. Read it." --Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

"Rooney crafts a devastating story from a series of everyday sorrows by delicately traversing female and male anxieties over sex, class, and popularity. This is a magnificent novel." --Publishers Weekly (starred review)

Let's see what all the buzz is about and discuss her book over tea and cake on June 4th at 6pm at Airship!
