It’s paperback publication day for Hannah Tovey and her feel-good, moving debut, The Education of Ivy Edwards (Piatkus).
Perfect for fans of Dolly Alderton’s Everything I Know About Love, the novel has received some glowing reviews ahead of publication:
“Smart, bittersweet and extremely funny . . . so perceptive and REAL” Daisy Buchanan, author of How to Be a Grown Up
“Warm, witty and occasionally filthy . . . and full of heart” Nicola Mostyn, author of The Gods of Love
“The Education of Ivy Edwards is a whirlwind of a read, and proved to be a great distraction from the current climate. . . . Ivy’s mum might be my favourite character, she’s bonkers and I loved her!” Eleanor Reads Books
“A brilliant debut” Heat Magazine
The novel follows Ivy Edwards as she attempts to navigate adult life…
Adult life is hard. Send help.
Ivy Edwards is thirty-one years old, funny, shameless, and a bit of a romantic.
She’s also currently trying not to cry in the office toilet.
Partly because she’s just run out of money for fags. A bit because her mum continues to annoy her. Definitely not because she’s just been dumped by her fiancé.
With her London life in shambles and her family miles away in the Welsh valleys, Ivy doesn’t actually feel like she belongs anywhere.
At least, she has her friends – and a bottle of vodka.
Embarking on a journey of singlehood, Ivy is about to discover that sometimes, having your life fall apart can be surprisingly fun.
Sometimes, heartbreak can be the best education . . .
Hannah Tovey is from South Wales, but grew up in Hong Kong. She graduated from Faber Academy in 2018, after completing the Writing a Novel course under tutor Richard Skinner, where she finished The Education of Ivy Edwards.
Hannah lives in Bow, East London.
