‘Such a beautiful book. Captures perfectly a moment in time we’ve all experienced.’ Graham Norton

One life-changing summer

Sixteen-year-old Charlie meets Fran…

Charlie Lewis is the kind of boy you don’t remember in the school photograph. His exams have not gone well. At home he is looking after his father, when surely it should be the other way round, and if he thinks about the future at all, it is with a kind of dread.

Then Fran Fisher bursts into his life and despite himself, Charlie begins to hope.

But if Charlie wants to be with Fran, he must take on a challenge that could lose him the respect of his friends and require him to become a different person. The price of hope, it seems, is Shakespeare.

Join Chorleywood Bookshop and David Nicholls for a poignant, funny and enchanting afternoon to celebrate the release of ‘Sweet Sorrow’, a tragicomedy about the rocky path to adulthood and the confusion of family life, a celebration of the reviving power of friendship and that brief, searing explosion of first love.

Please note: if you are attending with others if one individual books together in one transaction you will be seated together. We cannot make guarantees but will do our very best to sit you with your desired party if you book individually.
