Sally Rooney, who established her literary fame with Normal People, has a new novel coming out this fall.
Her publisher announced that Beautiful World, Where Are You will come out September 7; Literary Hub hears but can’t confirm that it was part of a two-book deal.
Unsurprisingly, if you read her previous work, the upcoming novel will follow young people exploring friendship and sexuality.
Lit Hub has the full blurb of Beautiful World, Where Are You (and its publisher’s praise).
Normal People, the story of an on-again, off-again love affair, won the top prize at the 2019 British Book Awards and the Costa Book Award for best novel.
It also landed on the Booker Prize longlist, the New York Times bestseller list, and quite a few best-of lists.
