When novelist Alice meets Felix, who works in a warehouse, she asks him if he'd like to travel to Rome with her. In Dublin, her best friend, Eileen, is getting over a break-up, and slips back into flirting with Simon, a man she has known since childhood. Alice, Felix, Eileen, and Simon are still young—but in this novel by the author of Normal People, life is catching up with them, and their romances, betrayals, and breakups are beginning to cost them.
