Went to London, Took the Dog: A Diary : From the prize-winning author of Love, Nina by Nina Stibbe

Sale price£16.99


One of Amy's favourite books of 2023

Navigating menopause, a deteriorating marriage and the streets of London (have they always been this dirty?) Nina is back with a new diary, as funny and biting as ever. - Amy

Ten years after the publication of the prize-winning Love, Nina comes the author's diary of her return to London in her sixty-first year. Twenty years after leaving London, Nina Stibbe is back in town with her dog, Peggy. Together they take up lodging in the house of writer Deborah (Debby) Moggach in Camden for 'a year-long sabbatical'. It's a break from married life back in Cornwall, or even perhaps a fresh start altogether. Nina is not quite sure yet. Debby does not have many demands - only to water the garden, watch for toads, and defrost the odd pie - so Nina is free to explore the city she once called home. Between scrutinising her son's online dating developments, navigating the politics of the local pool, and taking detergent advice at the laundrette, this diary of a sixty-year-old runaway reunites us with the inimitable voice of Love, Nina, as the writer becomes, as she puts it, 'a proper adult' at last.
