David Nicholls brings to bear all the wit and intelligence that graced ONE DAY in this brilliant, bittersweet novel about love and family, husbands and wives, parents and children. Longlisted for the Man Booker Prize for Fiction 2014.

'I was looking forward to us growing old together. Me and you, growing old and dying together.'

'Douglas, who in their right mind would look forward to that?'

Douglas Petersen understands his wife's need to 'rediscover herself' now that their son is leaving home.

He just thought they'd be doing their rediscovering together.

So when Connie announces that she will be leaving, too, he resolves to make their last family holiday into the trip of a lifetime: one that will draw the three of them closer, and win the respect of his son. One that will make Connie fall in love with him all over again.

The hotels are booked, the tickets bought, the itinerary planned and printed.

What could possibly go wrong?

MEDIA REVIEWS
Even better than One Day. * The Times *
I was having to ration myself for fear of coming to the end too soon. * Mail on Sunday *
I loved this book. Funny, sad, tender: for anyone who wants to know what happens after the Happy Ever After. -- Jojo Moyes
A literary and anthropological tour de force . . . astute and packed with brilliant observations, about life, art, culture and the infinite possibilities for human disappointment. I honestly can't imagine loving a novel much more. -- Christina Patterson * The Sunday Times *
The kind of book that reminds us what it means to be alive. * Good Housekeeping *
US is a perfect book. * Independent *
