15th July 1988. Emma and Dexter meet for the first time on the night of their graduation. Tomorrow they must go their separate ways.
So where will they be on this one day next year?
And the year after that? And every year that follows?
Twenty years, two people, ONE DAY. From the author of the massive bestseller STARTER FOR TEN. Reviews: 'A totally brilliant book about the heartbreaking gap between the way we were and the way we are...the best weird love story since THE TIME TRAVELER'S WIFE. Every reader will fall in love with it. And every writer will wish they had written it.' Tony Parsons 'Big, absorbing, smart, fantastically readable . . . brilliant on the details of the last couple of decades of British cultural and political life' Nick Hornby 'The funniest, loveliest book I've read in ages. Most of all it is horribly, cringingly, absolutely 100% honest and true to life: I lived every page.' Jenny Colgan 'The ultimate zeitgeist love story for anyone who ever wanted someone they couldn't have' Adele Parks 'I really loved it . . . it's absolutely wonderful . . . just so moving and engaging' Kate Mosse 'A wonderful, wonderful book: wise, funny, perceptive, compassionate and often unbearably sad . . . the best British social novel since Jonathan Coe's WHAT A CARVE UP! . . . Nicholls's witty prose has a transparency that brings Nick Hornby to mind: it melts as you read it so that you don't notice all the hard work that it's doing' The Times 'You'd be hard pressed to find a sharper, sweeter romantic comedy this year than the story of Dex and Em' Independent 'The novel of the year - a brilliantly funny and moving will-they, won't-they romance tracing a relationship on the same day each day for two decades' Heat
