In 1982 Nina Stibbe, a twenty-year-old from Leicester, moved to London to work as a nanny for a very particular family. It was a perfect match- Nina had no idea how to cook, look after children, or who the weirdos who called round were. And the family, busy discussing how to swear in German or the merits (or otherwise) of turkey mince, were delighted by her lack of skills. Love, Nina is the collection of letters she wrote home gloriously describing her 'domestic' life, the unpredictable houseguests and the cat everyone loved to hate. 'Hilarious.' Mail on Sunday, Financial Times and Sunday TImes 'A hoot, a warm, witty glimpse into a charmed, formative period in one young woman's life.' Metro 'Funny and sharp and has a distinctive streak of wildness- no book this year has made me laugh more.' John Lanchester, Guardian, Books of the Year 'By far the funniest, most genuinely heart-warming account of the everyday I've read.'
