Ghosts (15th October 2020)

(1 customer review)

£14.99

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.

    A brilliantly written, savagely funny look at modern day life for women in their early 30s; whether you’ve found your life partner, broken up, never found love, or not interested in it at all, there’s someone in here for everyone. Nina is a 32 year old food writer living in London; she has an enviable life with great friends, dream job, beautiful flat and close family. ‘Ghosts’ follows Nina’s life as she navigates everything that growing older entails, I really enjoyed reading it, For fans of ‘Expectation’ by Anna Hope and Emmajane Unsworth’s ‘Adults’.
