Nicholls's gift is character. There is a sharp empathetic intelligence to his writing that makes his characters real . . . the clear writing often dazzles with truth . . . sad funny, soulful
Praise for David Nicholls
David has a sublime talent for illuminating the murky causeway that most of us have to navigate between darkness and light
Nicholls writes with such tender precision about love
I don't think anyone writing right now captures youth and adolescence better; I'm not sure anyone even gets close.
It's just perfect in every way.
Such a beautiful book. Captures perfectly a moment in time we've all experienced.
It's everything a story should be. Beautiful and clear and heartfelt, and it will do what all brilliant stories do: it will find the very pinpoint of who you are and it will stay there.
Astutely observed, and almost painfully nostalgic, SWEET SORROW reads like a true story.
Funny, engaging and moving, another triumph from the brilliant David Nicholls.
Few pleasures in life compare to a David Nicholls novel and this is his best yet.
