Ghosts

The Top 10 Sunday Times Bestseller




The first novel by the Sunday Times bestselling author of Everything I Know About Love

***The first novel from the award-winning, bestselling author of Everything I Know About Love***Narrated by Holliday Grainger, star of Lady Chatterley's Lover, Tell it to the Bees and Animals. 'I love this book. It is wise, funny, tender and true, sharply-observed and utterly hilarious. Dolly Alderton's talent is phenomenal' Elizabeth Day 'Grainer...[captures] the brittle humour that masks a real vulnerability and sadness.' Alex Clarke, The Financial Times __________________________________________________ Nina Dean has arrived at her early thirties as a successful food writer with loving friends and family, plus a new home and neighbourhood. When she meets Max, a beguiling romantic hero who tells her on date one that he's going to marry her, it feels like all is going to plan. A new relationship couldn't have come at a better time - her thirties have not been the liberating, uncomplicated experience she was sold. Everywhere she turns, she is reminded of time passing and opportunities dwindling. Friendships are fading, ex-boyfriends are moving on and, worse, everyone's moving to the suburbs. There's no solace to be found in her family, with a mum who's caught in a baffling mid-life makeover and a beloved dad who is vanishing in slow-motion into dementia. Dolly Alderton's debut novel is funny and tender, filled with whip-smart observations about relationships, family, memory, and how we live now. ____________________________________________________Praise for GHOSTS 'I loved it - Dolly Alderton has clearly mastered every form of writing. Which is a surprise to nobody'Candice Carty-Williams 'Loved it from start to finish, really laugh out loud: well-written, packed with ideas and observations and so engaging I can't put it down' Philippa Perry 'Such clever writing, wonderfully funny; fab characters and delightful details. Divine' Nina Stibbe
