Connell and Marianne grew up in the same small town, but the similarities end there. At 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.

A year later, they’re both studying at Trinity College in Dublin. Marianne has found her feet in a new social world while Connell hangs at the sidelines, shy and uncertain. Throughout their years at university, Marianne and Connell circle one another, straying toward other people and possibilities but always magnetically, irresistibly drawn back together. And as she veers into self-destruction and he begins to search for meaning elsewhere, each must confront how far they are willing to go to save the other.

Normal People is the 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 that they can’t.

 

本書是關於兩個人互相吸引、友誼與愛的小說,從第一句對話開始,展開長達數年的故事發展。我們陪著這對年輕人,看著他們想離開彼此身邊,卻始終做不到。

康諾和梅黎安在西愛爾蘭的小鎮一起長大,但兩人的共同點僅止於此。在學校裡,康諾人氣高,大家都喜歡他;而梅黎安則是獨來獨往。然而當兩人一開始對話,那是一段尷尬卻振奮的對話,足以改變他們人生的變化就此展開。
 
我不知道我是有什麼毛病,梅黎安說,我不知道我為什麼就不能像正常人一樣。
我不知道我為什麼沒辦法讓別人愛我……
 
何謂正常?正常性?
渴望被愛,想擺脫離孤獨感;害怕跟別人不一樣,卻一再失去自我……
「正常人」 維持親密關係的極限何在?
