Irish author Sally Rooney named among TIME’s top 100 most influential people alongside Biden, Oprah and Putin
Irish author Sally Rooney has made TIME’s top 100 most influential people of 2022.
he ‘Normal People’ writer is on the list alongside Oprah Winfrey, Joe Biden, Vladimir Putin and Adele, among other well-known names.
Her first ever novel ‘Conversations with Friends’ was adapted in a HULU series that aired earlier this month.
TIME described the Mayo native as, “the minimalist examiner of modern romance.”
“She is the rare writer to have coveted merch, her books are touted as fashionable trophies, and her work has given rise to a cottage industry of lusty fantasy.”
When her adaptation of her novel ‘Normal People’ premiered in 2020, Ms Rooney garnered critical acclaim and is now regarded as one of the foremost millennial writers of her generation.
“Her ability to swerve means she won’t just be the hottest young novelist of the year—she will be a permanent fixture, not just as a hardback in the hands of appealing youth but as a critic in the collective conscience.”
Rooney is among the names under the ‘Titans’ title on TIME’s 2022 most influential people list.
