Synopsis "You are Here: The new Novel by the Number 1 Bestselling Author of one day"

Marnie is stuck.

Stuck working alone in her London flat, stuck battling the long afternoons and a life that increasingly feels like it’s passing her by.

Michael is coming undone.

Reeling from his wife’s departure, increasingly reclusive, taking himself on long, solitary walks across the moors and fells.

When a persistent mutual friend and some very English weather conspire to bring them together, Marnie and Michael suddenly find themselves alone on the most epic of walks and on the precipice of a new friendship.

But can it survive the journey?

A new love story by beloved bestseller David Nicholls, You Are Here is a novel of first encounters, second chances and finding the way home.

You Are Here encompasses all of David Nicholls' characteristic warmth, humour and observational insight. But it also asks fundamental questions of life, love and loneliness in such a beautifully delicate way that you don't even realise it's happening or that the fundamental truth of human happiness has been staring you in the face all along. I don't know how he does it, but he does and he's the only person who can - Elizabeth Day, author of FRIENDAHOLIC

Even if it was twice the length, it would have finished too soon - Sathnam Sanghera, author of EMPIRELAND

David Nicholls wears his formidable intelligence so generously and so lightly that you scarcely notice the skill it takes to write a book like this: a story at once passionately funny and richly human.

If you're looking for a great comic novel, You Are Here - Katherine Heiny, author of GAMES AND RITUALS

A stunning, funny, frank and beautiful look at loneliness, friendship, and the risks taken to love and be loved. In a career of standout books, You Are Here takes its place at the top. David Nicholls is my favourite writer - Chris Whitaker, author of WE BEGIN AT THE END

For anyone who has pounded a pavement or even climbed a mountain, wrangling with the stuff of life, love, loss, loneliness, betrayal and failure, or simply destiny's strange peculiarities that can upend life, this book is both journey and destination. It will make your heart soar with the climb. It's so tender and wise, that I found myself walking every step of the way with Marnie and Michael, through the rain and shine, hoping, praying that they would find one another, and at last see the view. It has pain and bliss in its pages, and does what David Nicholls does best: cracks open your heart, to show love in all its infinite beautiful chaos, imperfect, funny yet always true. Loved it - Abi Morgan, author of THIS IS NOT A PITY MEMOIR

I loved this book. A story about loneliness and the beginnings of love, with the backdrop of England's lakes and fells and relentlessly changeable weather.

I want to buy it for all my friends - Annie Macmanus, author of THE MESS WE'RE IN

I finished this novel in two breathless sittings, as invested in its outcome as I would be in the happiness of a friend. This is the magic of You Are Here: warm, generous and funny, it invites readers into the world of Marnie and Michael with the promise that everyone is welcome, and that choosing happiness and being courageous in any small way we can is always possible. I loved this book - Kaliane Bradley, author of THE MINISTRY OF TIME

You Are Here is a gorgeous, grown-up love story. I fell for Marnie and Michael hard and fast - this book is honest, raw, yet profoundly hopeful.

What a beautiful, beautiful novel, sensitive, witty, and brilliantly insightful and kind about us messy, stupid humans. I loved every single step of it.

Marnie and Michael are two characters who I will carry in my heart for a long time. This is a love story for all ages, an epic journey, a moving tale of second chances.

Brilliant: just perfect and exquisitely written. Every page is a delight - Jill Mansell, author of PROMISE ME

You Are Here is David Nicholls' funniest, warmest and most addictive novel yet. Perfect - Clare Chambers, author of SMALL PLEASURES

David is the laureate of the modern love novel, and this is his best yet - John Niven, author of O BROTHER

Oh this book! What's better than rooting for two shy, once-burnt characters to recognise that love is within reach? I stopped often to reread and savour its sparkling, wry sentences. You Are Here is both up-to-the-minute and old-fashioned in the best way: sharp, yet so very kind, funny, and bittersweet - Elinor Lipman, author of Ms Demeanor

A wryly heartwarming tale of second-chance romance . . . the dialogue crackles off the page . . . pure pleasure - Editor's Choice , Bookseller
