'The literary phenomenon of the decade.' Guardian'The book that defined a generation.' Stylist** Read the modern classic behind the BAFTA-winning series. **Connell and Marianne grow up in the same small town in the west of Ireland, but the similarities end there.

In school, Connell is popular and well-liked, while Marianne is a loner.

But when the two strike up a conversation - awkward but electrifying - something life-changing begins. Normal People is a story of mutual fascination, friendship and love.

It takes us from that first conversation to the years beyond, in the company of two people who try to stay apart but find they can't. 'Tender and devastating.' Guardian'A book to cancel plans for.' Grazia'A classic coming-of-age love story.' Vogue
