The major new novel from David Nicholls.

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.

About the Author

David Nicholls is the bestselling author of Us, One Day, Starter for Ten and the Understudy. His novels have sold over 8 million copies worldwide and are published in forty languages. David's fifth novel, Sweet Sorrow, will be published by Hodder in July 2019.

David trained as an actor before making the switch to writing. He is an award-winning screenwriter, with TV credits including the third series of Cold Feet, a much-praised modern version of Much Ado About Nothing, The 7.39 and an adaptation of Tess of the D'Urbervilles. David wrote the screenplays for Great Expectations (2012) and Far from the Madding Crowd (2015, starring Carey Mulligan).

Industry Reviews

Such a beautiful book. Captures perfectly a moment in time we've all experienced.

It's just perfect in every way.

Funny, engaging and moving, another triumph from the brilliant David Nicholls.

Astutely observed, and almost painfully nostalgic, SWEET SORROW reads like a true story.

It's everything a story should be. Beautiful and clear and heartfelt, and it will do what all brilliant stories do: it will find the very pinpoint of who you are and it will stay there.

He's such a genius. His novels are relatable and recognizable, but also surprising, breath-taking and life-enhancing

No one else writes novels that are both relatable and revelatory in the way he does

A big-hearted book with wonderful set-pieces ... beautifully funny and touching ... his books always seem as fresh as they are wise and funny. - Literary Review
