The hottest debut novel of 2023 from Schittâ€™s Creek and Smothered screenwriter and an Observer debut author of the year, Monica Heisey.
Maggieâ€™s marriage has ended just 608 days after it started, but sheâ€™s fine â€“ sheâ€™s doing really good, actually. Sure, sheâ€™s alone for the first time and canâ€™t afford her rent and her obscure PhD is going nowhereâ€¦ but at the age of twenty-nine, Maggie is determined to embrace her new status as a Surprisingly Young DivorcÃ©eâ„¢.
As Maggie throws herself headlong into the chaos of her first year of divorce, she soon finds herself questioning everything, including: Why do we still get married? Did I fail before I even got started? And how many 4am delivery burgers do I need to eat until I am happy?
Really Good, Actually is an irresistible debut novel about the uncertainties of modern love, friendship and happiness.
