The Front List: Dolly Alderton in conversation with Yomi Adegoke

Dolly Alderton is a self-confessed over-sharer. ‘All I want to do is tell everyone everything. I connect with people through the details of life.’ This sharing – of the good, the bad, and the messy bits of living – has become Alderton’s trademark.

Her wildly popular debut memoir, Everything I Know About Love, celebrated the sheer joy, romance, and complexity of female friendship, while her follow up novel, Ghosts, cemented her reputation as one of the sharpest chroniclers of modern times, and modern relationships.In Good Material, Andy – a male comedian who never won the Perrier Award – has just lost the woman who he believed to be the love his life. He’s floundering, broken hearted, and a bit of a dick, to be honest.

Join Alderton as she talks about this very modern novel about class and comedy, heartbreak, male friendship, and why you should always seek to find the other side of the story. 

Copies of Dolly Alderton’s new book Good Material are available to purchase with your ticket (£9.99 RRP - £8.99 when purchased with a ticket). Pre-purchased books can be picked up at the time of the event. There will be a signing with Dolly Alderton after the event.

BSL interpretation is available on request.

This event will not be livestreamed.

Please note this event takes place at McEwan Hall, Teviot Pl, Edinburgh EH8 9AG. The Front List is presented in partnership with Underbelly.
