David Alan Nicholls (born 30 November 1966) is an English novelist and screenwriter. Nicholls is the middle of three siblings. He attended Barton Peveril sixth-form college at Eastleigh, Hampshire, from 1983 to 1985 (taking A-levels in Drama and Theatre Studies along with English, Physics and Biology), and playing a wide range of roles in college drama productions. Colin Firth was at the same College and they later collaborated in And When Did You Last See Your Father?. He went to Bristol University in the 1980s (graduating with a BA in Drama and English in 1988) before training as an actor at the American Musical and Dramatic Academy in New York.Throughout his 20s, he worked as a professional actor using the stage name David Holdaway. He played small roles at various theatres, including the West Yorkshire Playhouse and, for a three-year period, at the Royal National Theatre. He struggled as an actor and has said "I'd committed myself to a profession for which I lacked not just talent and charisma, but the most basic of skills. Moving, standing still - things like that." Nicholls says that a turning point in his career came when a friend gave him a copy of PJ Kavanagh's memoir The Perfect Stranger, which tells the author's own tale of maturation, finding love, and discovering his path in life.

From here on out I’m dedicating a lot more time to reading. Anyway, back to the book. Ever since I read One Day by David Nicholls I’ve bee...

Us, David Nichols, author; David Haig, narrator Be prepared to raise an eyebrow, smile and even laugh out loud as this story unfolds. Us is a charming and tender tale about the mating game and all that it involves as it evolves from the courtship to the marriage, to the raising of a family and beyon...

As you all know I’m staying away from anything that might get me over excited and yes, unfortunately that extends to *uhum* the bedroom. Kidding, it’s not that dire yet! Its a little anxiety thing that I’m getting a handle on, so someday soon I’ll be flipping the pages of those twisted thrillers I l...

Years ago I read One Day by David Nicholls and I enjoyed the book, although it was, of course, the love story that wasn’t. And, this book continues that theme. Rather than a love story leading up to a twenty-five year relationship it is the unravelling of what, at first glance, appears to be a happy...
