International Bestselling Author, David Nicholls, to visit Kiama in his first Australian tour and his only event outside a major city, presented by Bouquiniste Bookshop Cafe. David Nicholls will be in conversation with Clayton Zane (co-owner of Bouquiniste Bookshop) and special guest Edwina Bartholomew. The author talk will be held on Saturday 31st August at 3pm, at The Pavilion Kiama, discussing David’s latest novel Sweet Sorrow. Copies of David’s novels will be available at the event, with a Book Signing commencing after the talk. David Nicholls is the author of the worldwide phenomenon One Day, and bestselling novels Us, The Understudy and Starter for Ten. His novels have sold over eight million copies worldwide and are published in forty languages. David’s last book, Us, was longlisted for The Man Booker Prize for Fiction in 2014. David wrote the screenplay for the film adaptations of his novels One Day, which starred Anne Hathaway and Started for Ten, which starred James McAvoy. David recently won a BAFTA award and was nominated for an Emmy for Patrick Melrose, his adaptation of the novels by Edward St Aubyn, starring Benedict Cumberbatch. Sweet Sorrow 'That most rare and coveted of literary feats: a popular novel of serious merit, a bestseller that will also endure.' – Observer. 'Triumph ... the sense of nostalgia is visceral and intense, almost time-bending.' - The Sunday Times. 'Does any writer do nostalgia quite like David Nicholls? His bestseller One Day was partly so adored for the way he captured the feeling of being young, being in love, and being confused. He returns to similarly fertile territory on Sweet Sorrow, only stepping back into teenage years, the writing an ideal blend of the gently humorous and utterly heartfelt. It made me feel like something had swollen up inside my chest, and readers are liable to find their thoughts drifting over their own misspent school holidays or crushingly ardent first loves.' - Holly Williams, The Independent, UK.
