David Nicholls: Us

Wednesday 20th May 2015 7pm - 8pm 107 Charing Cross Road Literary Event, Chargeable Event

Following on from the hugely successful, bestselling One Day, David Nicholls appears at this exclusive London event to present the new-in-paperback Us.

Longlisted for the 2014 Man Booker, Us is the touching, tragi-comic story of one Douglas Petersen -- a fifty-something man with questionable social skills, awakened in the middle of the night by his wife as she tells him that their marriage is over. Narrating their last family tour of Europe -- the protagonist's final gambit to keep hold of his increasingly distant wife and teenage son -- and the early days of their meeting and courtship, Us is a hilarious, eminently readable tale of marriage, parenthood, travel and time.

Joining us to present this, his latest novel, former actor Nicholls is also a BAFTA nominated screenwriter -- having adapted his own novels One Day and Starter for Ten for the screen, Nicholls also penned this year's big- screen version of Far From the Madding Crowd, starring Carey Mulligan, as well as the recent Great Expectations and the celebrated 2008 BBC TV adaptation of Tess of the D'Urbervilles.

Come and get inspired by a man of many talents, and a creative whose work straddles multiple forms, as he discusses the origin and impact of Us.
