New Chapter Author Mornings give the opportunity to meet fascinating writers and discuss their work.
Novelist and screenwriter David Nicholls’ most recent book Us was published in 2014. A bestseller and long listed for the Booker prize, Us is a ‘tragi-comedy about marriage, parenthood, travel, art and science’ and takes place during a family’s disastrous attempt to inter-rail together around Europe.
David began his career as an actor and writer for television before his third novel One Day was published in 2009 to critical acclaim, staying in the Sunday Times bestseller list for ten weeks. It has since gone on to sell over 2 million copies. David wrote the screenplay for Lone Scherfig’s film adaptation starring Anne Hathaway, which was released in 2010, as well as the recent film adaptations of Great Expectations and Far from the Madding Crowd, starring Carey Mulligan.
David Nicholls will be appearing in conversation about his work with writer and literary editor of GQ magazine, Olivia Cole.
