Thirtynothing

That's the premise of the sparkling new romantic comedy from the author of the acclaimed international bestseller Ralph's Party-an irresistible novel about best friends, turning thirty ... and falling in love.

The critics raved about Lisa Jewell's bestselling debut novel, calling Ralph's Party "addictively readable" (The Times, London); "like going to a great dinner party" (The New York Post). thirtynothing brings together a charming quartet of modern men and women in pursuit of sex, love, friendship, and the perfect relationship.

On his thirtieth birthday, Dig Ryan bumps into his first love Delilah, whom he hasn't seen in twelve years. Delilah was the most beautiful girl in school and a constant thorn-in-the-side of Nadine, who has been Dig's best friend for the last fifteen years. Nadine isn't about to let Delilah outshine and outmaneuver her again ... which is when she calls her first love, Phil ....

A buoyant novel about friendship, lust, growing up, and growing older, thirtynothing is sure to delight fans of Ralph's Party and to win this hip, thirtysomething author a wealth of new readers.

    The liner notes compared Jewell to Nick Hornby, perhaps because of all the dysfunctional characters. I found the characters' actions hard to believe; their motivations for doing rash and unbelievably ...
