THE SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLER WITH A NEW CHAPTER ON TURNING THIRTY

*Winner of Autobiography of the Year at the National Book Awards 2018*
*Shortlisted for the Waterstones Book of the Year 2018*


Award-winning journalist Dolly Alderton survived her twenties (just about) and in Everything I Know About Love, she gives an unflinching account of the bad dates and squalid flat-shares, the heartaches and humiliations, and most importantly, the unbreakable female friendships that helped her to hold it all together. Glittering with wit, heart and humour, this is a book to press into the hands of every woman who has ever been there or is about to find themselves taking that first step towards the rest of their lives.

***************

'Alderton is Nora Ephron for the millennial generation' Elizabeth Day

'Steeped in furiously funny accounts of one-night stands, ill-advised late-night taxi journeys up the M1, grubby flat-shares and the beauty of female friendships, as Alderton joyfully booze-cruises her way through her twenties' Metro

'Deeply funny, sometimes shocking, and admirably open-hearted and optimistic' Daily Telegraph

'The book we will thrust into our friends' hands . . . that will help heal a broken heart. 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

'A sensitive, astute and funny account of growing up millennial' Observer

'I loved its truth, self awareness, humour and most of all, its heart-spilling generosity' Sophie Dahl

'Alderton proves a razor-sharp observer of the shifting dynamics of long term female friendship' Mail on Sunday

'It's so full of life and laughs - I gobbled up this book. Alderton has built something beautiful and true out of many fragments of daftness' Amy Liptrot

Hilarious and moving. Alderton is Nora Ephron for the millennial generation (Elizabeth Day)

Steeped in furiously funny accounts of one-night stands, ill-advised late-night taxi journeys up the M1, grubby flat-shares and the beauty of female friendships, as Alderton joyfully booze-cruises her way through her twenties (Metro)

Poignant, witty, comic, and self-deprecating. A laugh-out-loud, lightning quick journey through the years that will resonate with anyone who's ever been young and in love. (Daily Express)

I loved its truth, its self awareness, humour and most of all, its heart spilling generosity. The power of female friendships is such great, uncharted territory, and just when you think it's going one (wonderful) way, it takes you somewhere infinitely more rugged, complicated and all the more affectingly tender. A joy. In short, it's a stone cold classic(Sophie Dahl)

Very, very, very funny. Don't hate me when I tell you that Everything I Know About Love is Sex And The City for millennials, because I mean it as high praise (Red)

Exquisite, hilarious, I loved every page. I was dazzled by her warmth and wisdom: Dolly has written an extraordinary book that all women will be able to relate to (Emma Jane Unsworth)

I loved it so much, I wanted it to go on forever, Dolly Alderton is so gifted at making people care. A rare talent (Marian Keyes)

If Nora Ephron is the cool aunt you wish you'd had, Dolly Alderton is your favourite cousin. I loved it and I can't imagine anyone who wouldn't; it's a genuine delight (Kristen Roupenian, author of Cat Person)

Alderton is an old soul - she has learned life lessons while not yet out of her twenties that many of us post-menopausal matrons are still struggling with. A wonderful writer, who will surely inspire a generation the way that Caitlin Moran did before her. (Julie Burchill)

Funny, sexy and clever, Dolly Alderton is never less than dazzling on the travails of the human heart. She writes with breathtaking honesty about falling into lust and out of love, and each chapter reads like those late night conversations with your best girlfriend that you never want to end (Clover Stroud)About the Author
