The Man Booker Prize-longlisted follow-up to the multimillion-copy bestselling ONE DAY. Jojo Moyes says, 'I loved this book. Funny, sad, tender: for anyone who wants to know what happens after the Happy Ever After.'
Galaxy Book Award-winner (ONE DAY), Richard & Judy bestseller (STARTER FOR TEN), BAFTA Award nominee (GREAT EXPECTATIONS) and now Man Booker Longlisted (US) author David Nicholls trained as an actor before making the switch to writing. As well as his multimillion-copy bestselling novels STARTER FOR TEN, THE UNDERSTUDY and ONE DAY, David is a scriptwriter whose credits include the TV series Cold Feet, Rescue Me, I Saw You, the TV movies The 7:39 and Aftersun, and screenplays for Far From the Madding Crowd, Great Expectations, Tess of the D'Urbervilles and When Did You Last See Your Father? He has also written the screenplays for the film adaptations of his own novels, STARTER FOR TEN (2006) which starred James McAvoy, ONE DAY (2010), starring Jim Sturgess and Anne Hathaway, and the forthcoming THE UNDERSTUDY (release TBC).
As he proved in One Day, Nicholls is brilliant at picking apart modern life with all its hopes, disillusionments and regrets, and marrying it to a gently heartbreaking narrative. * Observer * This very funny, wise and bittersweet novel was in my view even more enjoyable than Nicholls' previous bestseller One Day. * Daily Express * US is a perfect book. * Independent * The kind of book that reminds us what it means to be alive. * Good Housekeeping * I was having to ration myself for fear of coming to the end too soon. * Mail on Sunday *
