Nina Dean has arrived at her early thirties as a successful food writer with loving friends and family, as well as a new home and neighbourhood. When she meets Max, a 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 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 family, with a mum who’s caught in a mid-life makeover and a dad who is vanishing in slow-motion into dementia.
Dolly Alderton’s debut novel is funny, and filled with whip-smart observations about relationships, family, memory, and how we live now.
