Sweet Sorrow
‘That most rare and coveted of literary feats: a popular novel of serious merit, a bestseller that will also endure.’ – Observer.

‘Triumph … the sense of nostalgia is visceral and intense, almost time-bending.’ – The Sunday Times.

‘Does any writer do nostalgia quite like David Nicholls? His bestseller One Day was partly so adored for the way he captured the feeling of being young, being in love, and being confused. He returns to similarly fertile territory on Sweet Sorrow, only stepping back into teenage years, the writing an ideal blend of the gently humorous and utterly heartfelt. It made me feel like something had swollen up inside my chest, and readers are liable to find their thoughts drifting over their own misspent school holidays or crushingly ardent first loves.’ – Holly Williams, The Independent, UK.

This event is presented by Bouquiniste Bookshop Kiama, a local, independent and curated bookstore and licensed café. Bouquiniste serves specialty coffee and tea with artisan cakes and light lunches. Bouquiniste hosts a monthly bookclub, author events, live music events and private functions. Every Friday Bouquiniste opens into the evening for Friday Wine Down, with after work drinks and cheese platters.
