Sally Rooneys' Normal People' has taken the top prize at the British book awards, beating Michelle Obamas widely-tipped autobiography' Becoming' and last years Man Booker winner Anna Burnss Milkman, to win the title of book of the year 2019. Receiving the award, Rooney called it an enormous privilege and an honour, thanking librarians and booksellers in particular for their help finding her audience.
I do feel astonishingly lucky, she said. Brett Wolstencroft, judge and manager of Daunt books, said that Rooneys novel achieves that rare thing, a sublime work of literary fiction that exquisitely renders a universal experience: being young, finding love, friendship and, ultimately a sense of self. 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.
