You wait ages for The One…then 203 come along at once.

One night Lauren finds a strange man in her flat who claims to be her husband. All the evidence – from photos to electricity bills – suggests he’s right. Lauren’s attic, she slowly realises, is creating an endless supply of husbands for her.

But when you can change husbands as easily as changing a lightbulb – like the one who’s too hot (there must be a catch), or the one who makes a great breakfast sandwich – how do you know whether the one you have now is the good-enough one, or the wrong one, or the best one? And how long should you keep trying to find out?

Holly Gramazio will be joining us to discuss her hilarious debut, The Husbands, alongside Rowan Hisayo Buchanan, author of The Sleep Watcher, Harmless Like You, and Starling Days, and editor of Daunt Books’ own essay collection, Dog Hearted.
