Everything I Know About Love Summary


Everything I Know About Love by Dolly Alderton

THE SUNDAY TIMES TOP TEN BESTSELLER

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

'This is the book we will thrust into our friends' hands, the book that will help heal a broken heart. Her pages wrap around you like a warm hug' Evening Standard

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

When it comes to the trials and triumphs of becoming a grown up, journalist Dolly Alderton has seen and tried it all. 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.

'With courageous honesty, Alderton documents her life up to now, the highs and the lows - the sex, the drugs, the nightmare landlords, the heartaches and the humiliations. Deeply funny, sometimes shocking, and admirably open-hearted and optimistic. A brilliant debut' Daily Telegraph

'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 thought I knew a lot about love. Not as much as Dolly. Read as soon as possible' Sharon Horgan

Everything I Know About Love Reviews


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 *
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 *
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 *
Mesmerising, brilliant * Daily Telegraph *
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 *
I thought I knew a lot about love. Not as much as Dolly. Read as soon as possible. * Sharon Horgan *
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 *
Witty and insightful * Sunday Times Culture *

You will quite literally laugh and cry as Dolly crashes her way through her teens and twenties. This is about growing up and all the mess that comes with it. I loved it.

* The Pool *
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 *
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 *

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 *
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 *
A sensitive and funny account of growing up millennial. * The Observer *
Will have you hooked and nodding from the first page. Hilarious and moving * Grazia *
Alderton proves a razor-sharp observer of the shifting dynamics of long term female friendship * Mail on Sunday *
If you're ever feeling a tad down and need to climb into bed with a book, Emerald Street would prescribe Heartburn by Nora Ephron...Fortunately, it now has a millennial companion piece courtesy of writer and journalist, Dolly Alderton * Emerald Street *
Witty and warm, this is ostensibly a memoir about romantic love - and it is filled with plenty of stories about great and terrible men. But the most touching parts were on friendship, and how powerful and comforting the love of a good friend is * Stylist *
I so recommend Dolly Alderton's millennial memoir, which takes you on an uncomfortable journey through love and anxiety, to an unexpectedly happy ending. It's just lovely * Eva Wiseman *
Weaving first-person stories and lists with email parodies and recipes, it's Nora Ephron for the Tinder generation * Financial Times *
Her fun and moving stories of bad dates and good friends melted my heart * Sunday Mirror *
Funny, touching and wholly delightful * The Bookseller *
Sure to leave you smiling * Elle Magazine *
An effervescent guide to millennial life * i *
Honest, funny and touching * Evening Standard *
With courageous honesty, Alderton documents the highs and the lows - the sex, the drugs, the nightmare landlords, the heartaches and the humiliations. Deeply funny, sometimes shocking, and admirably open-hearted and optimistic * Daily Telegraph *
