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
I’m at that time of my life where I really resonated with many of Dolly’s tales in this book. It was so refreshing to know you’re not alone in many thoughts in this journey of life. Fantastic read. Dolly really is one of the best storytellers of our generation.
Thoughtful, emotional and comforting to all women
I read this book at a low point one week and it instantly made me feel like I am not the only person who has been through a tough time and that actually, so many women go through rough patches. this book was a comfort to me and I will be recommending it to any woman of any age who needs to feel like it is not just “you against the world”. Thank you Dolly for your honesty about being a woman
Really interesting read
I saw a lot of people on Instagram posting about this book and thought I would give it a try.... I was not disappointed. Dolly is an interesting character and her stories are fascinating. Definitely worth a read.
