PRE-ORDER PROBABLY NOTHING, THE BRAND NEW LAUREN BRAVO NOVEL COMING SUMMER 2024! ‘Lauren Bravo is one of my very favourite writers.’ Dolly AldertonWho do you tell about your little moments of joy?   For Gwen the answer is no one. She knows people: parents, old friends… but she’s been drifting long enough that she can’t quite reach them. To tell them that she’s just eaten the best sticky-toffee-pudding of her life or that she’s been made redundant.

In one mouthful, Gwen realises she’s lonely. But so is everyone, right? Gwen decides a charity shop is the best place to remedy that feeling because that’s where other not-quite-young people go looking for something new. There she meets unlikely friends and donated items with untold stories and, somewhere amongst the dust, the intoxicating feeling of possibility.

Dazzlingly witty, Preloved is a tale about friendship, loss and being true to yourself no matter the expectations. Lovingly celebrating the enduring power and joy of charity shops.

Praise for Preloved ‘An absolute gem of a novel’ Sarra Manning   ‘I think I’ve been waiting for a novel like Preloved for my whole reading life.’ Daisy Buchanan ‘Laugh-out-loud funny but also poignant and tender’ Laura Price, author of Single Bald Female ‘Optimistic and engaging… intimate and joyful… We’re waiting for Preloved to be optioned by Reese Witherspoon or at least adapted into a binge-worthy Netflix series…’ Glamour
