CHAPTER ONE ''THE FUTURE'' Friday 15TH July 1988 Rankeillor Street, Edinburgh ''I suppose the important thing is to make some sort of difference,'' she said. ''You know, actually change something.''      ''What, like "change the world", you mean?''      ''Not the whole entire world. Just the little bit around you.''      They lay in silence for a moment, bodies curled around each other in the single bed, then both began to laugh in low, pre-dawn voices. ''Can''t believe I just said that,'' she groaned. ''Sounds a bit corny, doesn''t it?''      ''A bit corny.''      ''I''m trying to be inspiring! I''m trying to lift your grubby soul for the great adventure that lies ahead of you.'' She turned to face him. ''Not that you need it. I expect you''ve got your future nicely mapped out, ta very much. Probably got a little flow-chart somewhere or something.''      ''Hardly.''      ''So what''re you going to do then? What''s the great plan?''      ''Well, my parents are going to pick up my stuff, dump it at theirs, then I''ll spend a couple of days in their flat in London, see some friends.

About the Author

David Nicholls was born in 1966 in Eastleigh, Hampshire. Nicholls studied English Literature and Drama at the University of Bristol. When he graduated he won a scholarship to study at the American Musical and Dramatic Academy in New York. David appeared in plays at the Battersea Arts Centre, the Finborough, West Yorkshire Playhouse, Birmingham Rep, and had a three year stint at the Royal National Theatre, understudying and playing small parts. During this period David took a job at BBC Radio Drama as a script reader/researcher and he developed an adaptation of Sam Shepard's stage-play Simpatico with the director Matthew Warchus. He also wrote his first original script, Waiting, which was later optioned by the BBC. Simpatico was turned into a feature film in 1999 which allowed David to start writing full-time. I Saw You won best single play at the annual BANFF television festival. He has been twice nominated for BAFTA awards. David's first novel, Starter for 10 (Hodder, July 2004) was featured on the first Richard and Judy Book Club. He has also written The Understudy (Hodder, March 2005) and One Day (Hodder, June 2009). David lives in North London with his partner Hannah and two children.

Editorial Reviews

"[An] instant classic. . . . One of the most hilarious and emotionally riveting love stories you’ll ever encounter." — People “Big, absorbing, smart, fantastically readable." —Nick Hornby, from his blog   "[Nicholls] has a gift for zeitgeist description and emotional empathy that''s wholly his own. . . . [A] light but surprisingly deep romance so thoroughly satisfying." — Entertainment Weekly “Nicholls offers sharp dialogue and wry insight that sounds like Nick Hornby at his best.” — The Daily Beast (A Best Book of the Summer) "Fluid, expertly paced, highly observed, and at times, both funny and moving." — Boston Globe "Those of us susceptible to nostalgic reveries of youthful heartache and self-invention (which is to say, all of us) longed to get our hands on Nicholls’s new novel. . . . And if you do, you may want to take care where you lay this book down. You may not be the only one who wants in on the answers." — New York Times Book Review "Who doesn’t relish a love story with the right amount of heart-melting romance, disappointment, regret, and huge doses of disenchantment about growing up and growing old between quarreling meant-to-be lovers?" — Elle, Top 10 Summer Books for 2010 “A great, funny, and heart-breaking read.” — The Early Show [CBS] "Funny, sweet and completely engrossing . . . The friendship at the heart of this novel is best expressed within
