The brilliant new novel from the Sunday Times bestselling author of Ralph's Party and The Truth About Melody Browne.
Lisa Jewell had always planned to write her first book when she was fifty. In fact, she wrote it when she was twenty-seven and had just been made redundant from her job as a secretary. Inspired by Nick Hornby?s High Fidelity, a book about young people just like her who lived in London, she wrote the first three chapters of what was to become her first novel, Ralph?s Party. It went on to become the bestselling debut novel of 1998. Twelve bestselling novels later, she lives in London with her husband and their two daughters. Lisa writes every day in a local cafe where she can drink coffee, people-watch, and, without access to the internet, actually get some work done.Get to know Lisa by joining the official facebook page at www.facebook.com/LisaJewellOfficial or by following her on Twitter @lisajewelluk.

"A gripping examination of all the difficulties a modern couple can face ... Well written and compelling" Daily Mail "I can't get enough of Lisa Jewell's books - they're so moreish!" -- Camilla Kerslake News of the World "Poignant and heart-wrenching, it's a wonderful insight into what can happen when the fairytale finally ends" The Sun "Pretty damn good ... Jewell stands out, providing insightful character studies ... and she is so readable - you can fall into After the Party as you would a particularly soft settee" Time Out, Paperback Pick, 4 stars "Lisa's heartfelt writing and raw, honest storytelling makes for an emotional, funny and heartbreaking journey ... but there is a glimmer of hope. Can Jem and Ralph find their way back to happiness? 5 stars" heat
