She is the former cohost and cocreator of the weekly pop-culture and current affairs podcast The High Low. Her first book, Everything I Know About Love, became a top-five Sunday Times best seller in its first week of publication and won a National Book Award (UK) for Autobiography of the Year. Ghosts is her first novel.


An astonishingly assured debut... Deftly observed and deeply funny, Ghosts considers where we find, and how we hold onto love with what might well be described as haunting precision.
--Marley Marius, Vogue

Ghosts is wonderful. Funny, sharply observed, poignant, and full of truths about life and love and friendship."
--Matt Haig, author of The Midnight Library

"Ghosts is an absolute knock-out. Wickedly funny and, at turns, both cynical and sincere, Dolly Alderton's voice feels like your very favorite friend. I devoured it."
--Taylor Jenkins Reid, author of Daisy Jones & the Six

"Witty, touching without ever being sentimental, hugely enjoyable."
--David Nicholls, author of One Day

"Such clever writing, wonderfully funny; fab characters and delightful details. Divine."
--Nina Stibbe, author of Reasons to be Cheerful

"Dolly Alderton has clearly mastered every form of writing. Which is a surprise to nobody."
--Candice Carty-Williams, author of Queenie

"A sharp-eyed debut."
The Guardian

"A stunning achievement: I was laughing out loud, doing my best a few minutes later not to burst into tears and then angry that it had all come to an end. So moving, so funny, so beautifully written and so poignant. Brilliant."
―Stanley Tucci

"There are sharply skewered set pieces, but also tender observations . . . a promising, deftly written, often entertaining and poignant debut novel."
Sunday Times

"Utter BRILLIANCE. Dolly is such an insightful commentator on love, longing, friendship and emotional landscapes. I absolutely LOVED it!"
―Marian Keyes

In this heartfelt, funny and insightful tale, Alderton cleverly explores the way memories, doubts and home can haunt us.
Sunday Express

This heartfelt tale is in turns smart, caustically witty and achingly sad.
―Sunday Mirror

"Ghosts is all heart and humour."

The sprightly, sometimes touching debut novel by British memoirist Alderton (Everything I Know About Love) follows a cookbook author through her life's 'strangest year...' This should hit the spot for readers of women's fiction."
