EVIE EPWORTH IS TEN YEARS OLDER. BUT IS SHE ANY WISER?!'It's an uplifting, rip-roaring read, peppered with nostalgic detail and plenty of comic asides.' Daily Express'A golden ray of sunshine. If you're after a funny, uplifting summer read then this is for you!' Libby Page, author of The Lido 'A joyous way to spend an afternoon.' Joannna Nadin, author of The Double Life of Daisy Hemmings'Taylor's writing is sublime, effortlessly combining humour with pathos and spot-on period detail while sensitively exploring themes such as loss, grief, love and death. It's sure to be another hit.' Yorkshire Post'A thoroughly uplifting and unputdownable sequel to the bestselling The Miseducation of Evie Epworth.' Waterstones 1972. Ten years on from the events of The Miseducation of Evie Epworth and Evie is settled in London working for the BBC. She has everything she's ever dreamed of (a career, a leatherette briefcase, an Ossie Clark poncho) but, following an unfortunate incident involving Princess Anne and a Hornsea Pottery mug, she finds herself having to rethink her life and piece together work, love, grief and multiple pairs of cork-soled platform sandals. Ghosts from the past and the spirit of the future collide in a joyous adventure that sees Evie navigate the choppy waters of her messy twenties. Can a 1960s miseducation prepare her for the growing pains of the 1970s? Big-hearted, uplifting, bittersweet and tender, All About Evie is a novel fizzing with wit and alive to the power of friendship in all its forms. Praise for The Miseducation of Evie Epworth 'Tight, clever and riddled with wit. Like discovering Adrian Mole or Bridget Jones for the first time.' Joanna Nadin, author of The Queen of Bloody Everything 'A sweet, fizzy sherbet dib-dab of a book - deliciously nostalgic, hugely funny and ultimately heartwarming. The perfect book for our times.' Veronica Henry 'Such a joyful and uplifting read. Just the sort of thing that people will want to be reading right now.' Anita Rani, Radio 2 Book Club 'Full of fabulous characters, sprinkled with joy and drenched in wit.' Milly Johnson
