On Love, Life and Friendship, the instant Sunday Times bestseller
A compendium of good advice from her Sunday Times columns, Dear Dolly is Dolly Alderton at her wise, warm and witty best. All of human life is contained in these pages: from dating apps to eating disorders, too much sex, not enough sex and the ebb and flow of friendships, relationships and situationships. I felt like a better, kinder person for having read these letters and Dolly's thoughtful replies * Red * With a thoughtful essay about what answering others' questions has taught her, this collection of Alderton's agony aunt advice offers bundles of empathy (and zero judgement) about life's problems, from totally relatable dilemmas to the entertainingly voyeuristic * Grazia * Her refreshing take makes for compulsive reading. The result is an oddly soothing book, as the problems of others leave you not with a sense of schadenfreude but with the comforting realisation that something you have felt, or are feeling, has been felt by countless others - and it will always be that way * Daily Mail * Alderton has struck a chord with a generation ... Invaluable ... A must for die-hard Dolly fans * Heat * Dolly Alderton is so gifted at making people care. A rare talent * Marian Keyes * Alderton is Nora Ephron for the millennial generation * Elizabeth Day * Capturing the hearts and minds of young romantics and dreamers, she offers sage and sisterly advice to those in need * Magic Radio Book Club * 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 * Dolly Alderton is never less than dazzling on the travails of the human heart * Clover Stroud *
