#179: Dolly Alderton: On A Very Busy And Exciting Whirlwind Year

Dolly Alderton returns to Ctrl Alt Delete, again! 2018 was quite the year for Dolly with the release of Everything I Know About Love, which stayed in the Sunday Times bestseller chart for 32 weeks. She also won the Specsavers National Book Award Autobiography of the Year Award was one of six authors shortlisted for the Waterstones Book of the Year Award. Her book is out in paperback today (go buy it!), and she is celebrating the opening night of the launch with book tour, starting at the London Palladium, performing to an audience of more than 2000 people. It also sold out within 24 hours. She’s a judge for the Women’s Prize for Fiction 2019, and her own podcast The High Low and Love Stories continues to grow in popularity.

Dolly has been on this podcast twice before and I am thrilled to have caught up with her again for this episode reflecting on her whirlwind year. We talk about how to carve out time to write; online dating; supporting other women and the crazy success of her book.
