THE SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLER WITH A NEW CHAPTER
Winner of Autobiography of the Year at the National Book Awards 2018
Shortlisted for the Waterstones Book of the Year 2018
Now containing a new chapter on Everything I Know At Thirty.
When it comes to the trials and triumphs of becoming a grown up, journalist and former Sunday Times dating columnist Dolly Alderton has seen and tried it all. In her memoir, she vividly recounts falling in love, wrestling with self-sabotage, finding a job, throwing a socially disastrous Rod-Stewart themed house party, getting drunk, getting dumped, realising that Ivan from the corner shop is the only man you've ever been able to rely on, and finding that that your mates are always there at the end of every messy night out. It's a book about bad dates, good friends and - above all else - about recognising that you and you alone are enough.
Glittering, with wit and insight, heart and humour, Dolly Alderton's powerful début weaves together personal stories, satirical observations, a series of lists, recipes, and other vignettes that will strike a chord of recognition with women of every age - while making you laugh until you fall over. Everything I know About Love is about the struggles of early adulthood in all its grubby, hopeful uncertainty.
APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
Dolly Alderton is an absolute joy to listen to. In this audiobook of her self-narrated memoir, the columnist turned podcast host looks back at her teens and twenties, describing the series of riotous adventures she sought out when starving for experience. It's smart of Alderton to slot these entertaining anecdotes in between smaller chapters of witty lists, imaginary emails and questionable recipes, making this the type of audiobook that’s easy to listen to for briefer spells. Alderton is so engaging, though, you won't want to hit pause. There’s not an ounce of conceit in her retellings, just unreserved sincerity and electrifying wisdom drawn from the intimacy of her long-term friendships with women—her true loves.
