First published in 2018 by Fig Tree, an imprint of Penguin Random House UK.
Title on cover reads as "Everything I know about parties, dates, friends, jobs, life, love" with "parties, dates, friends, jobs, life" crossed out.
When it comes to the trials and triumphs of becoming a grown up, journalist and former Sunday Times dating columnist Dolly Alderton has seen and tried it all. In this book, 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. Glittering, with wit and insight, heart and humour, Dolly Alderton's 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 while making you laugh until you fall over. "Everything I know About Love" is about the struggles of early adulthood in all its grubby, hopeful uncertainty.
