Penguin presents the audiobook edition of Everything I Know About Love, written and read by Dolly Alderton. A spot-on, wildly funny and sometimes heartbreaking book about growing up, growing older and navigating all kinds of love along the way. When it comes to the trials and triumphs of becoming a grown-up, journalist and former Sunday Times dating columnist Dolly Alderton has seen and tried it all.

I wasn't familiar with Dolly Alderton before I started listening to Everything I Know About Love but that didn't stop me from instantly being drawn in to her raw and relatable memoir. This is such an endearingly honest, funny and at times deeply moving account of growing up in suburbia in the nineties and navigating the highs and lows of noughties relationships. Dolly's narration is both extremely relaxed and eloquent, especially in her discussion of the enduring love stories that are her female friendships that quickly got me thinking of my own Farly, AJ and India.

When you see your nation's flag fluttering in the breeze, what do you feel? For thousands of years flags have represented our hopes and dreams. We wave them. Burn them. March under their colours. And still, in the 21st century, we die for them. Flags fly at the UN, on the Arab street, from front porches in Texas. They represent the politics of high power as well as the politics of the mob.

Some slightly dubious accents from the narrator. They were not necessary and sometimes distracted from the dialogue
