Westminster rules in favour of gay marriage and abortion rights in Northern Ireland, former EDL leader Tommy Robinson is sentenced to 9 months in prison (and banned from YouTube), a man dressed in a gimp suit terrorises the people of Somerset, and a love letter from Tupac to Madonna is expected to fetch $300,000 at auction. Plus, how do YOU feel about Matt Hancock's plan to link up Alexa and the NHS? (Spoiler alert: Dolly doesn't like robots.)Today we have the man who has sold 8 million books, who possesses the most delicious voice you've ever heard (it even beats Philippe Sands), the one and only David Nicholls, on the show. The screenwriter of multiple hits such as Great Expectations and Patrick Melrose and the best-selling author of Starter for 10, The Understudy, One Day and Us, he is back with a new novel, Sweet Sorrow, about a teenage summer romance in the 80s. We talk about teenage love, parenting and being parented, writing, anxiety in the internet age and that twist in One Day. E-mail [email protected] @thehighlowshow LinksPre-order Dolly's novel, Ghosts, here! https://www.waterstones.com/book/ghosts/dolly-alderton/9781785177255Sweet Sorrow, by David Nicholls https://www.waterstones.com/book/sweet-sorrow/david-nicholls/9781529393088Sweet Home, by Wendy Erskine https://www.waterstones.com/book/sweet-home/wendy-erskine/9781906539726My Name Is Why, by Lemn Sissay https://www.waterstones.com/book/my-name-is-why/lemn-sissay/9781786892348The Lingering of Loss, by Jill Lepore for The New Yorker https://www.newyorker.com/magazine/2019/07/08/the-lingering-of-lossKids Don't Damage Women's Careers - Men Do, by Jessica Valenti for Medium's GEN https://gen.medium.com/kids-dont-damage-women-s-careers-men-do-eb07cba689b8David Szalay on All That Man Is, for BBC Radio 4's Bookclub https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/m0005mg6Lemn Sissay on Radio 4 Desert Island Discs https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b06gthszThe Adam Buxton Podcast: episode 100 http://adam-buxton.co.uk/podcasts/ep100-joe-cornish-louis-theroux For information regarding your data privacy, visit acast.com/privacy
