    Brought to you by Penguin. 

    The first novel from the award-winning, best-selling author of Everything I Know About Love.

    Narrated by Holliday Grainger, star of Lady Chatterley's Lover, Tell It to the Bees and Animals

    Nina Dean has arrived at her early 30s as a successful food writer with loving friends and family, plus a new home and neighbourhood. When she meets Max, a beguiling romantic hero who tells her on date one that he's going to marry her, it feels like all is going to plan.

    A new relationship couldn't have come at a better time - her 30s have not been the liberating, uncomplicated experience she was sold. Everywhere she turns, she is reminded of time passing and opportunities dwindling. Friendships are fading, ex-boyfriends are moving on and, worse, everyone's moving to the suburbs. There's no solace to be found in her family, with a mum who's caught in a baffling mid-life makeover and a beloved dad who is vanishing in slow-motion into dementia.

    Dolly Alderton's debut novel is funny and tender, filled with whip-smart observations about relationships, family, memory and how we live now.

    Kritikerstimmen

    "I love this book. It is wise, funny, tender and true, sharply-observed and utterly hilarious. Dolly Alderton's talent is phenomenal." (Elizabeth Day)

    "I loved it - Dolly Alderton has clearly mastered every form of writing. Which is a surprise to nobody." (Candice Carty-Williams)

    "Loved it from start to finish, really laugh out loud: well-written, packed with ideas and observations and so engaging I can't put it down." (Philippa Perry)

    Brilliant story, enchanting speaker

    This is a masterpiece. In my opinion, it deserves a Nobel Prize. The plot is brilliantly structured and the writing is absolutely beautiful. This story captures both the most precious and hurtful moments of life as well as its blissful mundanity. It is beautifully narrated as well, I love Grainger’s voice. I’ve listened to this story at least five times now and I recommend you to do the same!

    much more enjoyable than I expected

    Observant tale of relationships, heartbreak and joy.
    Thoroughly enjoyable with realistic and believeable characters; I felt that I met most of these personalities. Very recommendable.
