Description

An irresistible and achingly relatable debut from Roxy Dunn – a poet, screenwriter, and actor – As Young As This is a novel for anyone who has ever had to let go of what they thought their life would look like.

Elliot. Joe. Tommy. Nathanael. Wren. Oliver. Malik. Zach. Frank. Patrick. Noah. These are the men Margot has loved, liked, lusted over. Since she was seventeen, she’s pictured them like stepping stones – each one bringing her closer to finding someone to share her life with and, eventually, father the children she’s always imagined in her future.

From her first sexual encounter, to her first love, from grown-up dilemmas to spontaneous thrills, she’s soaked up every experience available to her, discovering friendship, joy and despair. Through all of this she’s refined her search until she believes she’s arrived at ‘the ending’ to her story. So how did she find herself here, single at thirty-four, and about to make the biggest decision of her life?

Roxy will be joined by writer and novelist, Claire Powell. Her short fiction has been broadcast on BBC Radio 4, and in 2017 she won the Harper’s Bazaar short story contest. Her debut novel, At the Table, was selected as a 2022 ‘Best Book of the Year’ in The Times, Sunday Times and Daily Telegraph.
