--? Desperate to reconcile her inner life to the desires and vulnerabilities of her body, Frances's intellectual certainties begin to yield to something new: a painful and disorienting way of living from moment to moment. Written with gem-like precision and marked by a sly sense of humor,?Conversations with Friends?is wonderfully alive to the pleasures and dangers of youth, and the messy edges of female friendship.

I read about this book in a Baffler article called, um, "F***ing the Patriarchy," which reviewed three new novels by female writers that offered up a distinctive feminist perspective, as well as a critique of masculinity. "Conversations with Friends" is the debut novel by Irish writer Sally Rooney. It's not always pleasant, but it is unfailing sharp, insightful, and smart. The other two novels mentioned in the article are "Neon in Daylight" and "Asymmetry."

This novel is set in contemporary Dublin and has been described as "post-Irish" as it is a departure from past portrayals of Irish society. The main character is introverted, smart, but not self-aware. The book is very readable, but I did not really like the nature of the relationships amongst the characters.

Well, Sarah Jessica Parker says it's so good she read it in one day. https://www.instagram.com/p/Bfec8YeAkgh/?hl=en&taken-by=sarahjessicaparker

Lights sparkled on the river and buses ran past like boxes of light, carrying faces in the windows.
