    Frances is a cool-headed and darkly observant young woman vaguely pursuing a career in writing while studying in Dublin. Her best friend and comrade-in-arms is the beautiful and endlessly self-possessed Bobbi. At a local poetry performance one night, Frances and Bobbi catch the eye of Melissa, a well-known photographer, and as the girls are then gradually drawn into Melissa's world, Frances is reluctantly impressed by the older woman's sophisticated home and tall, handsome husband, Nick.

    Connell and Marianne grow up in the same small town in rural Ireland. The similarities end there; they are from very different worlds. When they both earn places at Trinity College in Dublin, a connection that has grown between them lasts long into the following years. This is an exquisite love story about how a person can change another person's life - a simple yet profound realisation that unfolds beautifully over the course of the novel. It tells us how difficult it is to talk about how we feel and it tells us - blazingly - about cycles of domination, legitimacy and privilege.

    Frances går på universitet og er i praktik hos en litterær agent i Dublin. Hendes bedste veninde og tidligere kæreste er den smukke og selvoptagede Bobbi. En aften til et oplæsningsarrangement møder de fotografen Melissa og hendes mand, skuespilleren Nick. Den begavede, men distancerede Frances fascineres mod sin vilje af det ældre par, og det som begynder som en ironisk og uskyldig flirt med Nick, leder snart til et dybere forhold. Et kompliceret ménage-à-quatre af skiftende loyaliteter og kærlighedsforbindelser udfolder sig mellem de fire, men efterhånden som forholdene til Nick, til Frances besværlige og ulykkelige far og til Bobbi begynder at slå sprækker, får Frances stadig sværere ved at bevare sin kølige distance.
