Ghosts by Dolly Alderton (Free Download), 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.

Review quote

Witty, touching without ever being sentimental, hugely enjoyable — David Nicholls It’s incredibly moving. The idea of believing in everything and nothing in the same moment. The female friendships were beautifully drawn — Billie Piper Ghosts is wonderful. Funny, sharply observed, poignant, and full of truths about life and love and friendship. * Matt Haig * This debut novel is a tender, effervescent and deliciously well-observed guide to the complexities of thirty-something life — Jane Shilling * The Daily Mail * Ghosts is an absolute knock-out. Wickedly funny and, at turns, both cynical and sincere, Dolly Alderton’s voice feels like your very favourite friend. I devoured it — Taylor Jenkins-Reid A sharp-eyed debut . . . Tests the boundaries of what used to be called chick-lit * Guardian * There are sharply skewered set pieces, but also tender observations . . . a promising, deftly written, often entertaining and poignant debut novel * Sunday Times * Loved it from start to finish, really laugh out loud: well-written, packed with ideas and observations and so engaging I can’t put it down * Philippa Perry * I absolutely adored it. So clever and funny and such a treat. The pages really did turn themselves * Cathy Rentzenbrink * A stunning achievement: I was laughing out loud, doing my best a few minutes later not to burst into tears and then angry that it had all come to an end. So moving, so funny, so beautifully written and so poignant. Brilliant * Stanley Tucci * Utter BRILLIANCE. Dolly is such an insightful commentator on love, longing, friendship and emotional landscapes. I absolutely LOVED it! * Marian Keyes * Dolly Alderton’s writing is incredibly intimate, tender, and observant. Ghosts is a fantastic novel about friendship, family, and love * Holliday Grainger *.
