Love, Unscripted

Love, Unscripted

Owen Nicholls’ Love, Unscripted follows film projectionist Nick as he tries to understand why love isn’t always like the movies. Perfect for fans of romcoms, David Nicholls and Nick Hornby.

‘Sometimes a book comes along and it feels dusted with magic – Love, Unscripted is one of those books.’ Josie Silver, author of One Day in December

IT ISN’T ALWAYS LIKE THE MOVIES . . .


For the last four years, Nick’s life has been picture-perfect.

He’s been working his dream job as a film projectionist and he’s been dating Ellie, the love of his life and the coolest woman he’s ever met. It took a while, but this hopeless romantic finally found a love story to rival the big screen.

Until, one day, Ellie moves out.

Stunned by the end of their cinematic romance, Nick rewinds to the first night they met. Maybe if he can freeze-frame their happiest moments, he can work out why Ellie had to leave him behind.

Before the credits roll, will Nick become the hero of his own romantic comedy, or is it finally time for him to step out of the frame?

A complete delight for film lovers (and lovers of love)
Holly Bourne
High Fidelity with celluloid replacing vinyl - an astutely observed romantic comedy that had me shaking with laughter and sniffing away tears. Pure pleasure.
Nev Pierce, Contributing Editor EMPIRE Magazine
This is one of the best books I have ever read. If When Harry Met Sally and High Fidelity had a book baby, this would be it
Emma Cooper, author of The Songs of Us
A properly funny, clever, bittersweet romcom
Richard Roper, author of Something To Live For
High Fidelity for the multiplex generation. Owen Nicholls makes it look easy but it's a smart and funny book, laced with wisdom. A lovely, warm, engaging read.
Richard Lumsden, author of The Six Loves of Billy Binns
Sometimes a book comes along and it feels dusted with magic - Love, Unscripted is one of those books. Nostalgic, tender and achingly cool, it has the same understated beauty as a John Cusack movie. A love letter to the silver screen and to all of the iconic romantic comedies - it's book treasure, my new favourite.
Josie Silver, author of One Day in December
A gorgeous romcom filled with movie references and Obama-era nostalgia
Kate Davies, author of In At The Deep End
One of the most realistic love stories I have read
Michelle Elman, author of Am I Ugly?
An unmissable, multi-layered read

A nostalgic read for fans of Nick Hornby and David Nicholls . . . Expect plenty of film references as Nick tries to work out where it all went wrong - and if it can ever go right . . . [a] smart, funny novel
