FBF: Nina Stibbe in conversation

Nina Stibbe delivers a funny and poignant account of a year-long break from married life in Cornwall

The author of the bestselling Love, Nina traces the next chapter of her life as she departs for more endearing adventures in the capital.

How do I get rid of the mosquitoes infesting Deborah Moggach's garden? Is it normal for my kids to drink so much? And why the f*** doesn't anyone in London know how to clean up after their dog?

These are just some of the questions plaguing Nina as she plots her grand return to London, reflecting on what it means to turn your whole life around aged 60. Whether it's dinner parties with the great and the good of the London literati or micromanaging her son's online dating profile, Nina Stibbe's utterly inimitable wit is ever present throughout this diary of her first return to London since the Love, Nina years.

'A unique comic voice, endlessly funny. Nina makes me laugh so much' David Nicholls

'Stibbe has an extraordinary gift' -- Marian Keyes
