Take a sneak peek at David Nicholls' new book

Who didn’t look up from One Day on their commute only to see that every other passenger had their head buried in a copy? Whether you wept over the book or sobbed in the cinema, the skills of novelist David Nicholls in writing a heartbreaking romance are universally adored.

So it’s with great excitement that we were given the first look at the cover of his new novel, Us, a comedy about marriage that spans nine countries and 25 years.

“It’s a road trip with the pleasures and disasters of a long, difficult journey,” says Nicholls. “It’s a love story and I hope there’s the same mix of comedy and drama I’ve strived for in other books.” Looks like red will be this autumn’s book cover colour of choice.

Us by David Nicholls is published on 30 September by Hodder & Stoughton
