"There is no writer quite like Dolly Alderton working today and very soon the world will know it.” —Lisa Taddeo, author of #1 New York Times bestseller Three Women

“Dolly Alderton has always been a sparkling Roman candle of talent. She is funny, smart, and explosively engaged in the wonders and weirdness of the world. But what makes this memoir more than mere entertainment is the mature and sophisticated evolution that Alderton describes in these pages. It’s a beautifully told journey and a thoughtful, important book. I loved it.” —Elizabeth Gilbert, New York Times bestselling author of Eat, Pray, Love and City of Girls

The wildly funny, occasionally heartbreaking internationally bestselling memoir about growing up, growing older, and learning to navigate friendships, jobs, loss, and love along the ride

When it comes to the trials and triumphs of becoming an adult, journalist and former Sunday Times columnist Dolly Alderton has seen and tried it all. In her memoir, she vividly recounts falling in love, finding a job, getting drunk, getting dumped, realizing that Ivan from the corner shop might just be the only reliable man in her life, and that absolutely no one can ever compare to her best girlfriends. Everything I Know About Love is about bad dates, good friends and—above all else— realizing that you are enough.

Glittering with wit and insight, heart and humor, Dolly Alderton’s unforgettable debut weaves together personal stories, satirical observations, a series of lists, recipes, and other vignettes that will strike a chord of recognition with women of every age—making you want to pick up the phone and tell your best friends all about it. Like Bridget Jones’ Diary but all true, Everything I Know About Love is about the struggles of early adulthood in all its terrifying and hopeful uncertainty.


  • Amazing Read!!!

    By Shelby Luhoo
    I read this while I was in college and it was too relatable. She references that phase of her life within the text and it was thoroughly validating and reassuring as she continues to speak about life after and beyond her youth. I absolutely loved this memoir and have recommended it to all of my friends and family members. Especially my female companions. :)
  • Love love love!!

    Dolly expressed my exact feelings in a way that I could never put out myself! Such a great read for someone in their late 20s who feels like their life is in limbo.

    Dolly encapsulates the joyful memories of youth with the daunting anxieties of age in a clever, witty and artfully written novel. I loved the way she closed each chapter with something to take from it and ranged in topics. By the end, my definition of love felt like it was healed in a time I needed most. Uplifting and real, 5 stars!
