My debut novel Ten Things I’ve Learnt About Love, which weaves a story of love, loss, rootlessness and homecoming across the streets of contemporary London, is published by Picador in the UK, Penguin Press in the US, and in 14 other countries around the world.
What’s the Story?
Alice has just returned to London from months of travelling abroad. She is late to hear the news that her father is dying, and arrives at the family home only just in time to say goodbye.
Daniel hasn’t had a roof over his head for years, but to him the city of London feels like home in a way that no bricks and mortar ever did. He spends every day searching for his daughter; the daughter he has never met. Until now . . .
Heart-wrenching and life-affirming, this is a unique story of love lost and found, of rootlessness and homecoming and the power of the ties that bind. It is a story for fathers and daughters everywhere.
