If Nora Ephron is the cool aunt you wish you'd had, Dolly Alderton is your favourite cousin. Reading this book is like coming home after a bad date, or a terrible day at work, and finding the person who knows you best in the world sitting on your couch, ready to pour you a glass of wine and give you a hug. I loved it and I can't imagine anyone who wouldn't; it's a genuine delight * Kristen Roupenian, author of Cat Person * Almost shockingly intimate: the autobiographical writing is so rich, so affecting [. . .] Alderton is an old soul - not just because of her appreciation for Gene Kelly and Paul Simon but because 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 * 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 * 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 * Poignant, witty, comic, and self-deprecating. In a warm and conversational style she recounts the best and worst of her experiences in a laugh-out-loud, lightning quick journey through the years. This account will resonate with anyone who's ever been young and in love. * Daily Express * I can say with absolute certainty that you have to add it to your 2018 book list. 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 * Hilarious and moving, while all the time being beautifully written with insight and wit. Alderton is Nora Ephron for the millennial generation * Elizabeth Day * 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 * 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 * 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 * 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 * Eve 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 *
