David Nicholls talks to Sally Magnusson at the Edinburgh International Book Festival

The flush of first love and bittersweet summers on the cusp of adulthood are rich seams beautifully mined by novelist David Nicholls. The author of popular modern classics like Starter for Ten and One Day takes us into the heart of 16 year old Charlie Lewis, a boy nervously facing a future which is upended by the arrival of Fran Fisher. In this event filmed live at the 2019 Edinburgh International Book Festival, Nicholls introduces his latest hymn to life and love, in a conversation with broadcaster Sally Magnusson.
