Nicholls’s previous novel was the best-selling One Day, which served as the basis for a movie starring Anne Hathaway and Jim Sturgess.

David Nicholls spent five years writing the follow-up to his hit novel. Nicholls brilliantly captures Douglas's pain when faced with nothing but disdain, disrespect and derision from a son he loves so much. Matt Cain CainWriter. Thursday 18 September 2014 14:00. But the novel also explores the regret he feels as he acknowledges the mistakes he made as a father and how he gradually came to adopt the persona of the sour, stuffy and slightly disapproving dad.
