Trying

Trying

Hilarious, heartbreaking, truthful and bold’ Dolly Alderton

Meet Olivia Galvin.


She knows she’s lucky. There’s the handsome husband. The sounds-pretty-good-on-paper job. A house they can just about afford. Loving, intrusive and completely bonkers extended family. Plus, she’s having more sex than she’s ever had in her life.

But the one thing she really wants seems to be the one thing she just can’t seem to have…

Capturing the stress, sex and sometime hilarity of trying for a baby, Olivia’s all-too-familiar battles with modern life make her question whether having it all is ever really worth it.
