For those not in the know, Dolly Alderton is a literary sensation. Known as a bestselling author and columnist for The Sunday Times Style, her previous books have taken readers on a journey through love and heartbreak.

With Good Material, Alderton is taking a different approach to her usual work. This time around, she’s writing from a male perspective with the book’s main character being a 35 year old man named Andy. The book follows Andy as he navigates through a terrible breakup with a woman he believed to be ‘the one.’

The story is set against the backdrop of his faltering comedy career, social media struggles, and a dwindling social circle – all while sofa surfing on his best friend’s couch.
