Waterstones Says

The hugely popular journalist and author of Everything I Know About Love shares her wisdom, insight and empathy in these collected highlights from her Dear Dolly agony aunt column in The Sunday Times Style.

Since early 2020, Dolly Alderton has been sharing her wisdom, warmth and wit with the countless people who have written in to her Dear Dolly agony aunt column in The Sunday Times Style. Their questions range from the painfully - and sometimes hilariously - relatable to the occasionally bizarre. They include breakups and body issues, families, friendships, dating, divorce, the pleasures and pitfalls of social media, sex, loneliness, longing, love and everything in between.

Without judgement, and with deep empathy informed by her own, much-chronicled adventures in love, friendship and dating, Dolly leads us by the hand through the various labyrinths of life, proving that a problem shared is truly a problem halved.

MEDIA REVIEWS

A compendium of good advice from her Sunday Times columns, Dear Dolly is Dolly Alderton at her wise, warm and witty best. All of human life is contained in these pages: from dating apps to eating disorders, too much sex, not enough sex and the ebb and flow of friendships, relationships and situationships. I felt like a better, kinder person for having read these letters and Dolly's thoughtful replies - Red

With a thoughtful essay about what answering others' questions has taught her, this collection of Alderton's agony aunt advice offers bundles of empathy (and zero judgement) about life's problems, from totally relatable dilemmas to the entertainingly voyeuristic - Grazia

Her refreshing take makes for compulsive reading. The result is an oddly soothing book, as the problems of others leave you not with a sense of schadenfreude but with the comforting realisation that something you have felt, or are feeling, has been felt by countless others - and it will always be that way - Daily Mail

Alderton has struck a chord with a generation ... Invaluable ... A must for die-hard Dolly fans - Heat

Dolly Alderton is so gifted at making people care. A rare talent - Marian Keyes

Alderton is Nora Ephron for the millennial generation - Elizabeth Day

Capturing the hearts and minds of young romantics and dreamers, she offers sage and sisterly advice to those in need - Magic Radio Book Club

Alderton's wise words can resonate with women of all ages. She feels like a best friend and your older sister all rolled into one and her pages wrap around you like a warm hug - Evening Standard, on Everything I Know about Love

Dolly Alderton is never less than dazzling on the travails of the human heart - Clover Stroud
