Beautiful World, Where Are You

Beautiful World, Where Are You is literary darling Sally Rooney's latest new novel, which will be available at your local bookstores on 7 September!

Fans of Rooney's previous books Conversations with Friends and Normal People will love this new book—introspective, reflective, and philosophical, Beautiful World, Where Are You has a touching honesty and truthfulness to it that is brilliant and relatable.

In this novel, we follow Alice, a successful novelist, who meets warehouse worker Felix through an online dating app. She asks him if he’d like to accompany her on a trip to Rome for some publicity engagements that she has to take part in. At the same time, her best friend Eileen is getting over a break-up in Dublin, and slips back into flirting with Simon, a man she has known since childhood.

Alice, Felix, Eileen, and Simon are still young—but life is catching up with them. They desire each other, they delude each other, they get together, they break apart. They have sex, they worry about sex, they worry about their friendships and the world they live in.

Are they standing in the last lighted room before the darkness, bearing witness to something? Will they find a way to believe in a beautiful world?
