Good Material (Hardback)Dolly Alderton (author)
From the bestselling and beloved author of Ghosts, Dear Dolly and Everything I Know About Love comes a deliciously witty and wise novel about love, relationships and heartbreak that only Dolly Alderton could write.
Every relationship has one beginning. This one has two endings.
Andy loves Jen. Jen loved Andy. And he can't work out why she stopped. Now he is...
1. Without a home
2. Waiting for his stand-up career to take off
3. Wondering why everyone else around him seems to have grown up while he wasn't looking
Set adrift on the sea of heartbreak at a time when everything he thought he knew about women, and flat-sharing, and his friendships has transformed beyond recognition, Andy clings to the idea of solving the puzzle of their broken relationship. Because if he can find the answer to that, then maybe Jen can find her way back to him.
Andy still has a lot to learn, not least his ex-girlfriend's side of the story.
