« 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.

"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.
