« Sexe, drogues et Tinder - la Nora Ephron du nouveau millénaire est arrivée ! » The Daily Telegraph Dolly Alderton, célèbre journaliste et chroniqueuse anglaise, a tout vu et tout vécu en ce qui concerne les hauts et les bas de la génération Y. Avec humour, tendresse et une ironie bien britannique, elle nous parle de sujets qui nous touchent toutes : tomber amoureuse (souvent), s'autosaboter (avec entrain), trouver un boulot (ou pas), trop boire (plus jamais), se faire larguer (moi jamais) - et se rendre compte que le propriétaire de l'épicerie du coin ouverte 24/24 est le seul homme sur lequel vous pouvez vraiment compter. C'est un livre sur les mauvais rencards, les vraies amies et surtout sur le fait que, au bout du compte, nous sommes très bien comme nous sommes - et que personne n'a le droit de nous dire le contraire.
Dolly Alderton est une journaliste anglaise lauréate de nombreux prix. Elle a travaillé pour le Sunday Times, le Daily Telegraph, GQ, Marie Claire, Red et Grazia.

***The first novel from the award-winning, bestselling author of Everything I Know About Love***''I love this book. It is wise, funny, tender and true, sharply-observed and utterly hilarious. Dolly Alderton''s talent is phenomenal'' Elizabeth Day br>__________________________________________________Nina Dean has arrived at her early thirties as a successful food writer with loving friends and family, plus a new home and neighbourhood. When she meets Max, a beguiling 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, uncomplicated 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 her family, with a mum who''s caught in a baffling mid-life makeover and a beloved dad who is vanishing in slow-motion into dementia.Dolly Alderton''s debut novel is funny and tender, filled with whip-smart observations about relationships, family, memory, and how we live now.br>____________________________________________________Praise for Dolly Alderton ''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''A wonderful writer, who will surely inspire a generation the way that Caitlin Moran did before her'' Julie Burchill''Deeply funny, sometimes shocking, and admirably open-hearted and optimistic . . . Mesmerising, brilliant '' Daily Telegraph''Sensitive, astute and funny'' Observer''Alderton''s wise words can resonate with women of all ages. She feels like a best friend and your older sister all rolled into one and her pages wrap around you like a warm hug'' Evening Standard>
B>b>INTERNATIONAL BEST SELLER A smart, sexy, laugh-out-loud romantic comedy about ex-boyfriends, imperfect parents, friends with kids, and a man who disappears the moment he says "I love you."/b>br> b>/b>br>b>An absolute knock-out. Wickedly funny and, at turns, both cynical and sincere feels like your very favorite friend. --Taylor Jenkins Reid, author of Malibu Rising/b>/b>br>br>Nina Dean is not especially bothered that she''s single. She owns her own apartment, she''s about to publish her second book, she has a great relationship with her ex-boyfriend, and enough friends to keep her social calendar full and her hangovers plentiful. And when she downloads a dating app, she does the seemingly impossible: She meets a great guy on her first date. Max is handsome and built like a lumberjack; he has floppy blond hair and a stable job. But more surprising than anything else, Nina and Max have chemistry. Their conversations are witty and ironic, they both hate sports, they dance together like fools, they happily dig deep into the nuances of crappy music, and they create an entire universe of private jokes and chemical bliss.br>br>But when Max ghosts her, Nina is forced to deal with everything she''s been trying so hard to ignore: her father''s dementia is getting worse, and so is her mother''s denial of it; her editor hates her new book idea; and her best friend from childhood is icing her out. Funny, tender, and eminently, movingly relatable, Ghosts is a whip-smart tale of relationships and modern life.
