About

One life-changing summer
Sixteen-year-old Charlie meets Fran...


8 million copies
since STARTER FOR TEN first introduced us to his
incomparable talent for making us laugh, cry
and wince with recognition in the space of a single sentence;
ten years
after ONE DAY became the iconic love story for a generation;
five years
since the journey of US took him to the Man Booker Prize long-list;
DAVID NICHOLLS has written a major new novel, SWEET SORROW:
a hymn to the tragicomedy of ordinary lives, a celebration of the reviving power of friendship and that brief, blinding explosion of first love that perhaps can only be looked at directly once it has burned out.


'Nicholls writes with such tender precision about love'
The Times


'There is a sharp empathetic intelligence to his writing that makes his characters real . . . the clear writing often dazzles with truth . . . sad funny, soulful'
Observer


'A sublime talent for illuminating the murky causeway that most of us have to navigate between darkness and light'
Donal Ryan


'Nicholls' ability to create and then subvert the traditional plot for comedy is the secret of his success. It makes us confront the gap between what we expect from storytelling and what happens in real life'
Spectator
