Conversations with Friends

Author : Sally Rooney

 

IndieBound Staff

Another great debut novel, this one all about friendship and adulthood in the 21st century which would make the perfect mini-series – such great characters! Frances, a young introverted poet living in Dublin is navigating through life’s ups and downs alongside her best friend and extrovert Bobbi (who she also performs poetry with). The writing is very raw and really encapsulates the sometimes-messy moments of female friendship, especially when it comes to love. Frances’ observations of the world are a joy to read, highlighting the complexities of growing up in your twenties in fresh and addictive prose. - Kara, IndieBound
