Sweet Sorrow is a novel about the joy and angst of first love, the potency of friendship, the worry and the misery too. It is a tragicomedy about a turning point in the life of an unremarkable young man who is suddenly offered an opportunity to change his fortunes. David Nicholls, the bestselling author of Starter for Ten, One Day and Us, aims to make “the reader think, ‘yes, I remember exactly what that felt like’.” Few writers can tug at the heartstrings as convincingly and eloquently as David Nicholls. His screenwriting credits include the TV series Cold Feet and most recently, Patrick Melrose, starring Benedict Cumberbatch, which he adapted from the novels by Edward St Aubyn.
