Over twenty years, snapshots of an unlikely relationship are revealed on the same day--July 15th--of each year. Dex Mayhew and Em Morley face squabbles and fights, hopes and missed opportunities, laughter and tears. And as the true meaning of this one crucial day is revealed, they must come to grips with the nature of love and life itself. Soon to be a major motion picture from Focus Features/ Random House Films. *Author: Nicholls, David *Publication Date: 2010/06/15 *Number of Pages: 437 *Binding Type: Paperback *Language: English *Depth: 1.50 *Width: 5.25 *Height: 8.25
Annotation:
Set on a series of subsequent St. Swithin's Days over the course of two decades, ONE DAY follows the topsy-turvy but always witty friendship and sometimes love affair of hard-working, long-suffering Em and raffish, womanizing, semi-celebrity Dex. A wickedly witty writer, David Nicholls fills the pages with sly one-liners and acid banter, but what makes ONE DAY stand above the average comedy is its deep understanding of how love is teased and tortured by its deadly enemy, life. The fast-forward conceit is marvelously executed, allowing the reader to relish the immediacy of the moment while simultaneously witnessing Em and Dex's lives unfold in surprising ways. A bestseller in the UK, and probable future film, ONE DAY provides world-class humor and entertainment while hinting at the expanding depths of Nicholls's literary powers. Selected by the New York Times Book Review as a Notable Book of 2010.

Praise

"...Nicholls...moves into Nick Hornby territory with this wonderful romantic comedy....[He] writes so effortlessly and with so much wit and wisdom that he seems poised to earn the same recognition [in the United States] that he currently enjoys in the UK." (starred review) - Joanne Wilkinson 04/01/2010

"However widely ONE DAY is imitated, it will be hard to match Mr. Nicholls's easy blend of bumbling insecurities (Emma's), overweening showbiz arrogance (Dexter's...), slow but sure pacing, humorous though seldom outright funny dialogue and authentically troubling coming-of-age issues. Other, similar writers...mine this same vein, but they tell more pensively complicated stories. Mr. Nicholls uses his adroit professionalism for something more handily miraculous: sweetening the journey from fiery, idealistic dreaminess into unforgiving middle age." - Janet Maslin 07/15/2010

"[A] sweet and sad tale of romance and regret. What else do you expect from the travails of two lovers who have gone their separate ways over two decades? The good news is the book moves along more quickly than that. You will most likely finish it in, well, one day." - Craig Wilson 07/26/2010
