Faber Radio presents Sally Rooney’s
Conversations With Friends
22 May 2020
Before there was Normal People, there was Conversations With Friends – and we’re pleased to present three playlists by Sally Rooney that inspired the three central characters in this unforgettable book.
Frances is twenty-one years old, cool-headed and observant. A student in Dublin and an aspiring writer, at night she performs spoken word with her best friend Bobbi, who used to be her girlfriend. When they are interviewed and then befriended by Melissa, a well-known journalist who is married to Nick, an actor, they enter a world of beautiful houses, raucous dinner parties and holidays in Provence, beginning a complex ménage-à-quatre. But when Frances and Nick get unexpectedly closer, the sharply witty and emotion-averse Frances is forced to honestly confront her own vulnerabilities for the first time.
