About this item

Set on a series of subsequent St. Swithin's Days over the course of two decades, ONE DAY follows the topsy-turvy but always witty friendship and sometimes love affair of hard-working, long-suffering Em and raffish, womanizing, semi-celebrity Dex. A wickedly witty writer, David Nicholls fills the pages with sly one-liners and acid banter, but what makes ONE DAY stand above the average comedy is its deep understanding of how love is teased and tortured by its deadly enemy, life. The fast-forward conceit is marvelously executed, allowing the reader to relish the immediacy of the moment while simultaneously witnessing Em and Dex's lives unfold in surprising ways. A bestseller in the UK, and probable future film, ONE DAY provides world-class humor and entertainment while hinting at the expanding depths of Nicholls's literary powers. Selected by the New York Times Book Review as a Notable Book of 2010.
It’s 1988 and Dexter Mayhew and Emma Morley have only just met. But after only one day together, they cannot stop thinking about one another. Over twenty years, snapshots of that relationship are revealed on the same day—July 15th—of each year. Dex and Em face squabbles and fights, hopes and missed opportunities, laughter and tears. And as the true meaning of this one crucial day is revealed, they must come to grips with the nature of love and life itself.
