After the critical triumph of "Conversations With Friends", the youngest ever recipient of the PFD/"Sunday Times" Young Writer of the Year Award presents in "Normal People" a love story taking place between two students at Trinity College in Dublin who are from the same town but essentially different worlds. Themes of domination, legitimacy and privilege are addressed through their story in a tone of alternating compassion and menace.
