Mr Salary by Sally Rooney


Mr Salary feels like an extension of the same themes that Rooney explores in Conversations with Friends, namely a sense of forbidden love and the complexities of age difference in relationships. There is also a quick but intimate look at ageing, illness and loss. I wish it were longer, so that there was more room to explore the intricacies of this fragile relationship. I would recommend this one to anyone who is in a Normal People hangover and would like more of Rooney’s deft writing. – Georgia
