"There is no writer quite like Dolly Alderton working today and very soon the world will know it.”--Lisa Taddeo, author of #1 New York Times bestseller Three Women “Dolly Alderton has always been a sparkling Roman candle of talent. She is funny, smart, and explosively engaged in the wonders and weirdness of the world. But what makes this memoir more than mere entertainment is the mature and sophisticated evolution that Alderton describes in these pages. It’s a beautifully told journey and a thoughtful, important book. I loved it.”--Elizabeth Gilbert, New York Times bestselling author of Eat, Pray, Love and City of Girls The wildly funny, occasionally heartbreaking internationally bestselling memoir about growing up, growing older, and learning to navigate friendships, jobs, loss, and love along the ride When it comes to the trials and triumphs of becoming an adult, journalist and former Sunday Times columnist Dolly Alderton has seen and tried it all. In her memoir, she vividly recounts falling in love, finding a job, getting drunk, getting dumped, realizing that Ivan from the corner shop might just be the only reliable man in her life, and that absolutely no one can ever compare to her best girlfriends. Everything I Know About Love is about bad dates, good friends and—above all else— realizing that you are enough. Glittering with wit and insight, heart and humor, Dolly Alderton’s unforgettable debut 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—making you want to pick up the phone and tell your best friends all about it. Like Bridget Jones’ Diary but all true, Everything I Know About Love is about the struggles of early adulthood in all its terrifying and hopeful uncertainty.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“A beautifully told journey and a thoughtful, important book. I loved it.” Elizabeth Gilbert, New York Times bestselling author
“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 (London)
“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.” The Metro (London)
“Alderton makes for a delightful narrator despite, as she mentions, hating her posh, British boarding school accent. Her wit shines through, especially when narrating an imaginary, over-the-top bachelorette party from hell.” BookPage (starred audio review)
“A Sunday Times columnist draws her coming-of-age story with tender flair…Alderton’s portrait exemplifies love. A poignant breath of fresh air for those who struggled—or are struggling—with the ‘dramedy’ of early adulthood.” Kirkus Reviews
“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, author of The Break
“Hilarious and moving. Alderton is Nora Ephron for the millennial generation.” Elizabeth Day, author of How to Fail
“Reading this book is like coming home from a bad date 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.” Kristen Roupenian, author of Cat Person
