Good Material

by Dolly Alderton


Andy Loves Jen. Jen loved Andy. And he cant work out why she stopped… Set adrift on the sea of heartbreak at a time when everything he thought he knew about women, and flat-sharing, and his friendships has transformed beyond recognition, Andy clings to the idea of solving the puzzle of their broken relationship. Because if he can find the answer to that, then maybe Jen can find her way back to him.  Andy still has a lot to learn, not least his ex-girlfriend’s side of the story…

“Genuinely laugh-out-loud funny. . . . whipsmart dialogue and relatable millennial themes (Alderton’s forte) mean there’s never a dull moment. Despite it being a pleasingly easy read (we tore through it in a single day), Good Material still manages to be thought-provoking and wise.”—The Independent

‘The most book-based fun I had this year … It’s the most I’ve laughed while reading about heartbreak since Nick Hornby’s High Fidelity. A complete delight’ – The Sunday Times

“Wickedly funny and, at turns, both cynical and sincere, Dolly Alderton’s voice feels like your very favourite friend.” —Taylor Jenkins Reid

“Dolly Alderton has always been a sparkling Roman candle of talent. She is funny, smart and explosively engaged in the wonders and weirdness of the world.” —Elizabeth Gilbert

“WONDERFUL. . . . Shot through with Dolly’s characteristic emotional intelligence. . . . Very funny. . . . Such a pleasure to read. I devoured it. . . . I award it 13/10 on my QWJ scale (stands for Queasy with Jealousy that I didn’t write it).” —Marian Keyes

“Have you ever wondered what a lost love was thinking? In this ingeniously constructed and endlessly amusing novel, Dolly Alderton flips the script on everything we think we know about romantic loss, to bring us an unforgettable character on a deeply relatable downward spiral. Wise and relatable and pee-your-pants funny. I cried by page 5. Dolly Alderton is, quite simply, the bard of modern-day love.” —Lena Dunham

“With distinct notes of Helen Fielding, Richard Curtis and Nick Hornby . . . warm and generous. . . . A writer very much in control of her material.” —The Guardian

“Brilliantly observed. . . . Beautifully written, pacy and excellent on rejection, friendship and letting go. Fabulous.” —Daily Mail
