A Night In with Pheobe Luckhurst and Lucy Vine
Join fellow journalists Phoebe Luckhurst and Lucy Vine as they celebrate the publication of The Lock In and Bad Choices.
In conversation for this exclusive event, Phoebe and Lucy will share the inspirations behind their new books, touching on their shared themes of friendships, dating and life as millennials in the twenty-first century.
The Lock In is a fresh and hilarious story of housemates and hangovers and friendship and dating as four twenty-somethings discover what The Worst morning-after-the-night-before really looks like . . .
Ellen has the hangover from hell. Worse, she’s just discovered the kitchen is filling with water – and she knows exactly what Elias, her tyrannical landlord, will have to say about that. Even worse, it turns out the switch to turn it off is not in the attic. What is in the attic is a dead mouse.
And worst of all, after a series of increasingly unfortunate events, she’s managed to get locked in.
With both her flatmates: daffy Jack, who’s keen to get out but just as happy investigating the dusty board games up there, and her practical best mate Alexa, who is usually the one to lead them out of any scrapes… at least, whenever she’s not dealing with her own morning after the night before, involving one successful Hinge date, Ben. Who is now also stuck in the attic with them. And who, Ellen soon realises, is suspiciously familiar…
Eye-wateringly funny, tender and true, Bad Choices is a story about growing up, falling apart, and the friendships that hold us together: Two friends. Two decades. One big mistake...
Nat and Zoe have always shared everything.
Hopeless crushes, emergency tampons, messy sex stories, work triumphs, those days where you can't stop crying in the loos, those days where you can't stop dancing on the bar. They even share the same birthday, FFS. The struggle is real, but they'll always have each other.
Except best friends forever is a hard promise to keep...
