Flashback to 2018, you entered a coffee place you see a few people reading a book. You go to the library, you see a few other people reading that same book.
You go to the beach and every other nerd is sitting under their umbrellas reading the same book. That sensational book was Dolly Alderton’s debut novel “Everything I Know About Love”.
Coming from a debut writer and selling record breaking copies is something very admirable at such an age. If you’re not familiar with the book’s nature, this is a book about love, but it’s not just any old love story.
This is a book about the kind of love that can change your life and make you happier than you’ve ever been before. It’s about how being loved by someone who really understands and cares for you can make everything else in your life seem worthwhile.
Everything I Know About Love is funny and warm-hearted and true-to-life. Dolly tells her story from her own perspective – as someone who has loved and lost, who has been hurt and healed, who has grown up and come into her own identity as an adult woman.
She also takes us back in time to show us how she got to where she is now: someone who loves deeply but also knows how to laugh at herself along the way.
The wholesome combination of real and relatable has made the globally loved book into a series adaptation. A semi-fictionalised version of the beloved book will be explored on the small screens. Here’s everything you need to know.
