An astounding follow-up to the universally celebrated Conversations With Friends, Sally Rooney's second novel somehow goes even further in deftly illuminating the emotional minutia of contemporary relationships. Ostensibly charting the course of an on-off relationship between two students at Trinity College Dublin, Normal People delivers, in the characters of Marianne and Connell, some of the most intelligent, sensitive, and quietly profound insights into the complexities of human connection found anywhere in recent fiction. Completely essential reading.
A stunningly beautifully written novel by the author of Fen. This retelling of (at least) two fairy tales/myths is set on the river and tells the story of a daughter abandoned by her mother.

Join us as we celebrate the launch of Dead Girls, the new novel by Abigail Tarttelin.
When her best friend Billie is found murdered, eleven-year-old Thera–fearless and forthright–considers it her duty to find the killer. Aided by a Ouija board, Billie’s ghost, and the spirits of four other dead girls, she’s determined to succeed. The trouble with Thera, though, is that she doesn’t always know when to stop – and sometimes there’s a fine line between doing the right thing and doing something very, very bad indeed. Tense, visceral and thought-provoking, Dead Girls is the new novel from Abigail Tarttelin, the critically acclaimed author of Golden Boy.
