Summary

***NOW ON BBC THREE AND iPLAYER***

‘This book. This book. I read it in one day. I hear I’m not alone.’
– Sarah Jessica Parker (Instagram)

‘Brilliant, funny and startling.’ Guardian

‘I really like Conversations with Friends. I like the tone [Rooney] takes when she’s writing. I think it’s like being inside someone’s mind.’ – Taylor Swift

‘A sharp, darkly funny comment on modern relationships.’ Sunday Telegraph

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.
