I am damp at my armpits and wondering whether to nip out and buy a fresh T-shirt at lunch. I made dhal for dinner last night from a budget vegetarian cookbook I picked up in a charity shop, and let me tell you, it was astonishing.

            Synopsis

            Jenny is unloved, unemployable and emotionally unfiltered. Her long-suffering friends seem sick of her and whilst her social media portrays her life as a bed of roses, it is more of a dying succulent.Adults is what you want it to be. A misadventure of maturity, a satire on our age of self-promotion, a tender look at the impossibility of womanhood, a love story, a riot. And Emma Jane Unsworth is the only voice to hear it from. Adults is excruciating, a gut punch of hilarity and a book laden with truth that you will read again and again.'DAZZLING' Marian Keyes, ‘HILARIOUS' Dolly Alderton, ‘TENDER' Jessie Burton, ‘MAGNIFICENT' Daisy Buchanan, ‘INCREDIBLE' Candice Carty Williams, ‘MOVING' Laura Jane Williams, ‘BRILLIANT' Nikesh Shukla, ‘I LOVED IT' Sam Baker, ‘PAINFULLY TRUE' Kate Davies
