Lenny Abrahamson’s visual interpretations of Sally Rooney’s books are an important moment for youth culture in Ireland – which at 33 I’m not sure I’m still a member of. With such competition for television audiences and production, can the subtle exploration of human relationships in Conversations with Friends compete with all those thrillers out there for viewers?

In general, many critics have called the TV version of Rooney’s book sluggish. But the constant demand for pacing in stories is an indictment of the attention deficits that plague modern life and the techniques that television dramas use to court our attention. The Cliffhanger; the hook and twist in every scene. And I say that as a crime writer, where pace is the name of the game.
