Podcast: Listen to Sally Rooney and Kishani Widyaratna: Normal People | Events | Literature, books and film - BooBook Education | Scoop.it
Sally Rooney breathes new life into fiction. Her novels deal with ordinary life in all its unexpected ways. The *Guardian* said of Rooney’s debut novel, *[Conversations with Friends][1]*: ‘It’s rare that a novel elicits such ferocious and unmitigated awe from just about everyone you know, whether male, female, or millennial’. Rooney’s second novel, *[Normal People][2]* (published by Faber & Faber last September), was called ‘superb . . . a tremendous read, full of insight and sweetness’ by Anne Enright. Olivia Laing has stated that ‘Rooney is the best young novelist – indeed one of the best novelists – I’ve read in years.’ 

On the occasion of the paperback publication of *Normal People*, Rooney was in conversation with Kishani Widyaratna, editor at Picador Books and contributing editor at *The White Review*.

Johnson: Talking past each other - English teaching | Literature, books and film - BooBook Education | Scoop.it
SOME advice is worse than useless. A short list of bullet points from eHow, a website, that is passing around social networks purports to show “how to write good.” (Each rule was jokingly broken in explaining it.) Unfortunately, it will not help most people write good.
