'Alderton feels like a best friend and your older sister all rolled into one' Evening Standard
'Alderton is Nora Ephron for the millennial generation' Elizabeth Day
Award-winning journalist Dolly Alderton survived her twenties (just about) and in Everything I Know About Love, she gives an unflinching account of bad dates, squalid flat-shares, heartaches and humiliations, and most importantly, the unbreakable female friendships that helped her to hold it all together. Glittering with wit, heart and humour, this is a book to press into the hands of every woman you know.
Dolly's debut novel Ghosts, a funny and tender story about relationships in all their forms, is available to pre-order now!
'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' Metro

'A sensitive, astute and funny account of growing up millennial' Observer
'There is no writer quite like Dolly Alderton working today' Lisa Taddeo, author Three Women

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.
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
Alderton is an old soul - 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.
I loved it so much, I wanted it to go on forever, Dolly Alderton is so gifted at making people care. A rare talent
I thought I knew a lot about love. Not as much as Dolly. Read as soon as possible.
If Nora Ephron is the cool aunt you wish you'd had, Dolly Alderton is your favourite cousin. I loved it and I can't imagine anyone who wouldn't; it's a genuine delight
Witty and insightful
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.
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
