Waterstones Says

Already a millennial icon thanks to her Waterstones Books of the Year-shortlisted memoir Everything I Know About Love, Dolly Alderton turns her scalpel-sharp pen to fiction, with this big-hearted debut about the unravelling of a seemingly successful life.  

Signed Edition - stock arriving on Wednesday 2 December so orders will be despatch after this date.

A standard edition is available here.

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

32-year-old Nina Dean is a successful food writer with a loyal online following, but a life that is falling apart. When she uses dating apps for the first time, she becomes a victim of ghosting, and by the most beguiling of men. Her beloved dad is vanishing in slow motion into dementia, and she's starting to think about ageing and the gendered double-standard of the biological clock. On top of this she has to deal with her mother's desire for a mid-life makeover and the fact that all her friends seem to be slipping away from her ...

Dolly Alderton's debut novel is  funny, tender and painfully relatable, filled with whip-smart observations about relationships and the way we live today.
