THE SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLER 'That most rare and coveted of literary feats: a popular novel of serious merit, a bestseller that will also endure.' Observer 'Triumph ... the sense of nostalgia is visceral and intense, almost time-bending.' The Sunday Times 'Pitch perfect ... Exquisite ... Terrific ... Very funny ... Though Sweet Sorrow is certainly pulse-quickening enough to absorb readers through this summer's airport delays and rained-off beach days, it's no escapist fantasy. The tale of Charlie and Fran will linger long beyond your tan.' Telegraph One life-changing summer Charlie meets Fran... In 1997, Charlie Lewis is the kind of boy you don't remember in the school photograph. His exams have not gone well. At home he is looking after his father, when surely it should be the other way round, and if he thinks about the future at all, it is with a kind of dread. Then Fran Fisher bursts into his life and despite himself, Charlie begins to hope. But if Charlie wants to be with Fran, he must take on a challenge that could lose him the respect of his friends and require him to become a different person. He must join the Company. And if the Company sounds like a cult, the truth is even more appalling. The price of hope, it seems, is Shakespeare. Poignant, funny, enchanting, devastating, Sweet Sorrow is a tragicomedy about the rocky path to adulthood and the confusion of family life, a celebration of the reviving power of friendship and that brief, searing explosion of first love that can only be looked at directly after it has burned out. 'A compassionate, intelligent look at the raw pain and loneliness of a teenage boy, the everyday miracle of first love and the perennial power of Shakespeare's language.' Spectator 'A superbly written, beautifully observed account of teenage life, love, family dysfunction and friendship, which builds to a stunningly poignant ending.' Heat 'The author of Us and of course One Day has never written with more tenderness and insight than in this bittersweet story ... perfectly captures the dizzying highs and lows of first love.' Daily Express 'Such a beautiful book. Captures perfectly a moment in time we've all experienced.' Graham Norton

La nostra recensione

A devastatingly honest exploration of first love, razor-sharp reflections on friendship - oh, and some snort out loud funny moments * George Aligiah, The Guardian * A witty and tender evocation of young love * Robert Webb, The Guardian * I'm not sure there has ever been a better book to read while by the sea. The nostalgia, the humour, the deep understanding of adolescent love and indeed the sorrow. It's such a brilliant book. * i News * Capturing nostalgia for long endless summers as well as for the strangeness that is friendships among those cast together in a play... a beautiful coming of age story * The AU Review * Eagerly anticipated and did not disappoint * BookBrunch * Funny and nostalgic tale of first love * The Sydney Morning Herald * Nicholls writes with such tender precision about love * The Times * David has a sublime talent for illuminating the murky causeway that most of us have to navigate between darkness and light -- Donal Ryan Nicholls's gift is character. There is a sharp empathetic intelligence to his writing that makes his characters real . . . the clear writing often dazzles with truth . . . sad funny, soulful * Observer * Praise for David Nicholls * - * A glorious escape to the sunlit uplands of the 1990s, where a teenager first finds love * Financial Times * Piercingly observant, gloriously funny and achingly sad, this is David Nicholls' best book yet * Daily Mirror * Sweet Sorrow manages to be interesting, moving, hilarious and sad at the same time. I know when my heartstrings are being pulled, but tugged they assuredly were * Scotland on Sunday * Once again, he has pulled off that most rare and coveted of literary feats : a popular novel that will also endure. * The Week * Piercingly observant, gloriously funny and achingly sad, this is David Nicholls' best book yet * Daily Mirror * A delicious, pensive summer read * Press Association * No one else writes novels that are both relatable and revelatory in the way he does -- Alex Peake-Tomkinson, Evening Standard A classic coming of age novel with universal truths teased out with remarkable perception * Irish Times * A superbly written, beautifully observed account of teenage life, love, family dysfunction and friendship, which builds to a stunningly poignant ending * Heat * A funny, relatable coming-of-age story * The Sun * Interesting, moving, hilarious and sad at the same time * Scotsman * Full of wisdom, poignancy and laughs. * Mail on Sunday * Adrian Mole meets The Swish Of The Curtain in this lovely coming-of-age romcom about acting and the class divide * Daily Mail * No other writer breaks my heart and then partially bandages it back together quite like Nicholls does. Sweet Sorrow is an absolute must-read * Sheerluxe * Nicholls perfectly captures the dizzying highs and lows of first love * Daily Express * Pitch perfect ... Exquisite ... Terrific ... Very funny ... Though Sweet Sorrow is certainly pulse-quickening enough to absorb readers through this summer's airport delays and rained-off beach days, it's no escapist fantasy. The tale of Charlie and Fran will linger long beyond your tan * Telegraph * A master of the bittersweet coming-of-age novel * Herald * 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. -- Joanna Cannon Astutely observed, and almost painfully nostalgic, Sweet Sorrow reads like a true story. -- Clare Mackintosh If ever there was an author perfect to take with you on holiday (so to speak), it's David Nicholls' * Stella * Sweet Sorrow is a funny, affectionate exploration of first love * Guardian * A compassionate, intelligent look at the raw pain and loneliness of a teenage boy, the everyday miracle of first love and the perennial power of Shakespeare's language * Spectator * Funny, engaging and moving, another triumph from the brilliant David Nicholls. -- John Boyne A book that will find its way into your heart and set up home... this story perfectly captures the awkwardness and poignancy of first love * Red * It's just perfect in every way. -- Jill Mansell Nicholls' literary talents are impressive . . . the sense of nostalgia is visceral and intense, almost time-bending. * The Sunday Times * Written with great comic panache and generosity of spirit, it is Nicholls' most mature and compelling novel so far * i paper * Such a beautiful book. Captures perfectly a moment in time we've all experienced. -- Graham Norton I don't think anyone writing right now captures youth and adolescence better; I'm not sure anyone even gets close. -- Jenny Colgan, author of The Little Shop of Happy-Ever-After This is Nicholls' talent - what really sets this story apart is the dialogue: funny, telling, laughter-inducing, he's hard to beat. * Stylist * 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 * Full of the joy and pain of first love, fans who fell for bestseller One Day, ten years ago, won't be disappointed. * Sunday Mirror * Affirms once again Nicholls' talent for unearthing the special in the ordinary. * Metro * A classic coming of age novel with universal truths teased out with remarkable perception. * Irish Times * He's such a genius. His novels are relatable and recognizable, but also surprising, breath-taking and life-enhancing. -- Nina Stibbe This is Nicholls' talent - what really sets this story apart is the dialogue: funny, telling, laughter-inducing, he's hard to beat. * Stylist * Here he proves that he can still pull off that most rare and coveted of literary feats: a popular novel of serious merit, a bestseller that will also endure * Observer * Very funny and heart wrenchingly tender. * Grazia *
