Naoise Dolan for The Happy Couple, a Toppings Event

25 April @ 7:00 pm 9:00 pm

Naoise Dolan for The Happy Couple

‘I pure LOVED The Happy Couple. So witty, observant, wise and funny. Nihilistic about heteronormative relationships but so charmingly done I barely noticed. I cannot tell you how much I enjoyed it’ — Marian Keyes

Join Toppings for an evening with bookseller favourite, Naoise Dolan, to celebrate The Happy Couple – a ‘beautiful sonata about our relationships and a sad fugue for fear and loneliness’. Naoise made her way into our hearts with the wonderful Exciting Times and we couldn’t be more excited to host her for this phenomenal second book.

Naoise Dolan is an Irish writer born in Dublin. She studied at Trinity College, followed by a Master’s in Victorian literature at Oxford. Her debut novel, Exciting Times, was a Sunday Times bestseller, widely translated and optioned for TV. She is the winner of the 2021 Hawthornden Prize for Literature and has been shortlisted and longlisted for several prizes, including The Women’s Prize for Fiction, the Dylan Thomas Prize and The Sunday Times Young Writer of the Year Award.
