Description

Despues de Conversaciones entre amigos, Sally Rooney vuelve a deslumbrarnos con una historia sobre la fascinacion mutua entre dos personas que no consiguen encontrarse. El libro que inspiro la serie de HULU. Ganador del Costa Novel Award / Ganador del Irish Novel of the Year / Finalista del Man Booker Prize / Finalista del Women's Prize for Fiction / En la lista de libros favoritos del 2019 del Presidente Obama y de Oprah Magazine. Marianne y Connell son companeros de instituto pero no se cruzan palabra. El es uno de los populares y ella, una chica solitaria que ha aprendido a mantenerse alejada del resto de la gente. Todos saben que Marianne vive en una mansion y que la madre de Connell se encarga de su limpieza, pero nadie imagina que cada tarde los dos jovenes coinciden. Uno de esos dias, una conversacion torpe dara comienzo a una relacion que podria cambiar sus vidas. Gente normal es una historia de fascinacion mutua, de amistad y de amor entre dos personas que no consiguen encontrarse, una reflexion sobre la dificultad de cambiar quienes somos. La segunda novela de Sally Rooney acompana durante anos a dos protagonistas magneticos y complejos, dos jovenes que llegamos a entender hasta en su contradiccion mas sonada y en sus mas graves malentendidos. Esta es una historia agridulce que muestra como nos conforman el sexo y el poder, el deseo de herir y ser herido, de amar y ser amado. Nuestras relaciones son una conversacion a lo largo del tiempo. Nuestros silencios, lo que las define. ENGLISH DESCRIPTION NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER - LONGLISTED FOR THE MAN BOOKER PRIZE - NOW A HULU ORIGINAL SERIES 2020 - SALLY ROONEY NAMED TO THE 2019 TIME 100 NEXT LIST "A stunning novel about the transformative power of relationships" (People) from the author of Conversations with Friends, "a master of the literary page-turner" (J. Courtney Sullivan). NAMED ONE OF ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY'S TEN BEST NOVELS OF THE DECADE - NAMED ONE OF THE TEN BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY Entertainment Weekly - People - The New York Public Library - Slate - Harvard Crimson AND ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY Dwight Garner, The New York Times - The New York TImes Book Review - O: The Oprah Magazine - Time - NPR - The Washington Post - Vogue - Esquire - Glamour - Elle - Marie Claire - Vox - The Paris Review - Good Housekeeping - Town & Country - Kirkus Reviews - BookPage - BookRiot "Absolutely engrossing and surprisingly heartbreaking with more depth, subtlety, and insight than any one novel deserves."--Stephanie Danler Connell and Marianne grow up in the same small town in rural Ireland. The similarities end there; they are from very different worlds. When they both earn places at Trinity College in Dublin, a connection that has grown between them lasts long into the following years. This is an exquisite love story about how a person can change another person's life - a simple yet profound realisation that unfolds beautifully over the course of the novel. It tells us how difficult it is to talk about how we feel and it tells us - blazingly - about cycles of domination, legitimacy and privilege. Alternating menace with overwhelming tenderness, Sally Rooney's second novel breathes fiction with new life.
