One Day - by David Nicholls

Just finished this fantastic novel for our time. It starts on graduation day - July 15th - in Edinburgh in 1988, the same year I graduated from Manchester. It then returns to the lives of the two characters, Dexter and Emma, each year on the same day. I couldn't put it down, really very good, touching, shocking, poignant, warm, clever, observational and so very, very right.

I don't read enough fiction - this was a cracker - 9/10
