Review

Pitch perfect vintage comedy (Guardian)

Lives up to its title (Sunday Times)

My friends, you will UTTERLY ADORE Nina Stibbe's latest novel Reasons To Be Cheerful . . .It is SO SO funny, charming, odd-in-the-best-way and gorgeously uplifting! A delight from start to finish (Marian Keyes)

Stibbe's comedy probes what it means to become an adult, and how we form our financial, sexual, moral and political selves

(Daily Telegraph)

So dense with amusing detail that I thought about holding the book upside down to see if any extra funny bits might spill from the creases between the page (New York Times)

I read all of Reasons To Be Cheerful last night in one GLORIOUS gulp and it's SUCH a joy - Nina Stibbe turns out more perfect, sharp, unique sentences than anyone else in the game. It just CARTWHEELS (Caitlin Moran)

If you loved Adrian Mole you'll adore Lizzie Vogel . . . quirky and witty, it also packs an emotional punch (Sun)

Comedy gold . . . Reasons To Be Cheerful is just the read you need right now, seamlessly weaving together the big themes of life with charm and warmth (Stylist)

Reasons to be Cheerful's tone has been compared to Sue Townsend's but I could haul in Alan Bennett, Barbara Pym and even Jane Austen . . . she writes brilliantly (The Times)

The true heir to Sue Townsend (Caitlin Moran)

Book Description

A brilliantly funny and heartbreaking story of growing up and finding the independence you might not actually want . . .
