This book was the winner of the 2014 National Book Awards Popular Non-Fiction Book oF The Year. Love, Nina: Despatches from Family Life by Nina Stibbe is the laugh-out-loud story of the trials and tribulations of a very particular family. In 1982 Nina Stibbe, a 20-year-old from Leicester, moved to London to work as a nanny for a very particular family. It was a perfect match: Nina had no idea how to cook, look after children or who the weirdos were who called round. And the family, busy discussing such arcane subjects as how to swear in German or the merits (or otherwise) of turkey mince, were delighted by her lack of skills. Love, Nina is the collection of letters she wrote home gloriously describing her 'domestic' life, the unpredictable houseguests and the cat everyone loved to hate. "I adored this book and could quote from it forever." (Nick Hornby). "Funny and sharp: no book this year has made me laugh more." (John Lanchester, Guardian). "The funniest book I've read in ages." (Sunday Times). "An unassuming comic genius." (Independent). At the age of 20 Nina Stibbe moved from Leicestershire to London to become a nanny. Later she studied at Thames Polytechnic and worked in publishing. In 2014 her debut novel Man at the Helm was published. Love, Nina won the 2014 National Book Awards for Popular Non-Fiction Book of the Year. She now lives in Cornwall with her partner and children.
