32-year-old Nina Dean is a successful food writer with a loyal online following, but a life that is falling apart. When she uses dating apps for the first time, she becomes a victim of ghosting, and by the most beguiling of men. Her beloved dad is vanishing in slow motion into dementia, and she's starting to think about ageing and the gendered double-standard of the biological clock. On top of this she has to deal with her mother's desire for a mid-life makeover and the fact that all her friends seem to be slipping away from her . . .

Dolly Alderton's debut novel is funny, tender and painfully relatable, filled with whip-smart observations about relationships and the way we live today.

Reviews for Ghosts

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 * Red, on Everything I Know About Love * A wonderful writer, who will surely inspire a generation the way that Caitlin Moran did before her * Julie Burchill * 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, on Everything I Know About Love * Deeply funny, sometimes shocking, and admirably open-hearted and optimistic * Daily Telegraph,on Everything I Know About Love * Utter BRILLIANCE. Dolly is such an insightful commentator on love, longing, friendship and emotional landscapes. I absolutely LOVED it! * Marian Keyes * Such clever writing, wonderfully funny; fab characters and delightful details. Divine * Nina Stibbe * 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 *
