Dolly Alderton


Twitter


Dolly Alderton is a old journalist, writer and director who indulges in writing about herself in the third person when the medium calls for it. She then likes to read it back in a low, warm, velvety Scottish accent to imagine what it would be like to have Kirsty Young introduce her as a castaway on Desert Island Discs. She is reluctant to reveal too much more about her fantasy episode as she still, perhaps foolishly, holds out hope that one day she will be asked on the show and wouldn’t want to spoil the surprise for everyone. What she will tell you is her choices would include records by John Martyn, The Rolling Stones and Frank Sinatra (always adds a nice note of elegant nostalgia) and her luxury item would be a bed. But that’s all you’re ...more

“I would like to pause the story a moment to talk about ‘nothing will change’. I’ve heard it said to me repeatedly by women I love during my twenties when they move in with boyfriends, get engaged, move abroad, get married, get pregnant. ‘Nothing will change.’ It drives me bananas. Everything will change. Everything will change. The love we have for each other stays the same, but the format, the tone, the regularity and the intimacy of our friendship will change for ever.”
Dolly Alderton, Everything I Know About Love

“I am always half in life, half in a fantastical version of it in my head.”
Dolly Alderton, Everything I Know About Love

“Love is a quiet, reassuring, relaxing, pottering, pedantic, harmonious hum of a thing; something you can easily forget is there, even though its palms are outstretched beneath you in case you fall.”
Dolly Alderton, Everything I Know About Love
