CCR Book Club - February 23, 2020

For the next meeting the CCR Book Club choice will be "Normal People" by Irish author Sally Rooney, a winner of the British Book Award. This is a novel about young love between two teenagers from different social classes and much of it takes place on the campus of Trinity College in Dublin. The New York Times says, “You’ve likely heard of Rooney. She’s the young author, born in 1991 in the west of Ireland, who was excellently profiled by Lauren Collins last year in The New Yorker. She has written two fresh and accessible novels, “Conversations With Friends” (2017) and now “Normal People,” which have been met with euphoric reviews in the Anglo-Irish press." “Normal People” was longlisted for the Man Booker Prize. The Washington Post says “… Rooney’s main appeal lies in her apt observations on young love. Even as technological advances have made it easier to communicate, so much remains unspoken. Misunderstandings that could be easily cleared up with a straightforward conversation are rendered into emotional stalemates -- and major events on which the plot hinges.”
