Críticas:

Hilarious and moving. Alderton is Nora Ephron for the millennial generation (Elizabeth Day)

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, as Alderton joyfully booze-cruises her way through her twenties (Metro)

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. (Daily Express)

I loved its truth, its self awareness, humour and most of all, its heart spilling generosity. The power of female friendships is such great, uncharted territory, and just when you think it's going one (wonderful) way, it takes you somewhere infinitely more rugged, complicated and all the more affectingly tender. A joy. In short, it's a stone cold classic

(Sophie Dahl)

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)

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 (Emma Jane Unsworth)

I loved it so much, I wanted it to go on forever, Dolly Alderton is so gifted at making people care. A rare talent (Marian Keyes)

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 (Kristen Roupenian, author of Cat Person)

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. (Julie Burchill)

Funny, sexy and clever, Dolly Alderton is never less than dazzling on the travails of the human heart. She writes with breathtaking honesty about falling into lust and out of love, and each chapter reads like those late night conversations with your best girlfriend that you never want to end (Clover Stroud)

***********************

When it comes to the trials and triumphs of becoming a grown up, journalist Dolly Alderton has seen and tried it all. She vividly recounts falling in love, wrestling with self-sabotage, finding a job, throwing a socially disastrous Rod-Stewart themed house party, getting drunk, getting dumped, realising that Ivan from the corner shop is the only man you've ever been able to rely on, and finding that that your mates are always there at the end of every messy night out. It's a book about bad dates, good friends and - above all else - about recognising that you and you alone are enough.

'With courageous honesty, Alderton documents her life up to now, the highs and the lows - the sex, the drugs, the nightmare landlords, the heartaches and the humiliations. Deeply funny, sometimes shocking, and admirably open-hearted and optimistic. A brilliant debut' Daily Telegraph

'It's so full of life and laughs - I gobbled up this book. Alderton has built something beautiful and true out of many fragments of daftness' Amy Liptrot

'I thought I knew a lot about love. Not as much as Dolly. Read as soon as possible' Sharon Horgan
