'Nicholls' literary talents are impressive . . . the sense of nostalgia is visceral and intense, almost time-bending' The Sunday Times 'Written with great comic panache and generosity of spirit, it is Nicholls' most mature and compelling novel so far' i-paper 'A big-hearted book with wonderful set-pieces . . . beautifully funny and touching . . . his books always seem as fresh as they are wise and funny' Literary Review One life-changing summer Charlie meets Fran... In 1997, Charlie Lewis is the kind of boy you don't remember in the school photograph. His exams have not gone well. At home he is looking after his father, when surely it should be the other way round, and if he thinks about the future at all, it is with a kind of dread. Then Fran Fisher bursts into his life and despite himself, Charlie begins to hope. But if Charlie wants to be with Fran, he must take on a challenge that could lose him the respect of his friends and require him to become a different person. He must join the Company. And if the Company sounds like a cult, the truth is even more appalling. The price of hope, it seems, is Shakespeare. Poignant, funny, enchanting, devastating, Sweet Sorrow is a tragicomedy about the rocky path to adulthood and the confusion of family life, a celebration of the reviving power of friendship and that brief, searing explosion of first love that can only be looked at directly after it has burned out. 'Such a beautiful book. Captures perfectly a moment in time we've all experienced.' Graham Norton 'Adrian Mole meets The Swish Of The Curtain in this lovely coming-of-age romcom about acting and the class divide by the author of bestsellers One Day, Us and Starter For Ten' Daily Mail 'The author of Us and of course One Day has never written with more tenderness and insight than in this bittersweet story... perfectly captures the dizzying highs and lows of first love' Daily Express 'He's such a genius. His novels are relatable and recognizable, but also surprising, breath-taking and life-enhancing' Nina Stibbe

Captures perfectly a moment in time we've all experienced. -- Graham Norton I don't think anyone writing right now captures youth and adolescence better; I'm not sure anyone even gets close. -- Jenny Colgan, author of The Little Shop of Happy-Ever-After 'This is Nicholls' talent - what really sets this story apart is the dialogue: funny, telling, laughter-inducing, he's hard to beat.' * Stylist * The novel derives its punch from its expert rendering of how it feels to be a teenager in love and, plangently, what it is like to look back at those years in middle age * Literary Review *
