Sally Rooney: Beautiful World, Where Are You

Rooney’s latest novel revolves around two young couples in their 30s. They live their normal life, which involves work, friendship, and sex. Rooney’s prose is so simple on the surface, but she packs many layers into her story including political, social, and climate issues. Rooney’s sentences are so damn good. Even when she describes a mundane scene like a quiet kitchen, you can see a camera panning through the details like dust or a brown banana. Of course, her sex scenes are so intimate and erotic. I loved all the details. I wish I could write a fraction like her. I am officially a Sally Rooney fan. If you want a guilty-pleasure read, give this one a read.
