One Day (2009) – David Nicholls

One Day (2009) – David Nicholls –

‘So I’ve given this whole “growing old” thing some thought and I’ve come to the decision that I’d like to stay exactly as I am right now.’ (Dexter) 

The story of the long term relationship between Dexter Mayhew and Emma Morley, accompanied by a varied cast of friends, lovers, rivals and parents, rises above a conventional extended relationship story through the structure of basing events on one day in each succeeding year, chronological shifts, warm and lively authorial voice and a surprising turn of events. 

‘Finally, she loved someone and felt fairly confident that she was loved in return. If someone asked Emma, as they sometimes did at parties, how she and her husband  had met, she told them:

‘We grew up together.’
