“While there was breath in my body, she would never lack sufficient AA batteries.”

This week we’re reading David Nicholls much anticipated novel “Us”, the story of middle aged Biochemist Douglas Peterson whose wife announces her intention to leave him when their teenage son leaves home for University – but first there’s the small matter of taking one final family holiday together.

We discuss how the novel measures up to Nicholl’s previous smash hit One Day, and Rachael takes a look at some strategies other authors have used to deal with the pressure of writing a follow-up.  Meanwhile, Paul reveals that the book made him cry, and takes the opportunity to list 10 TV shows which also cause him to blub like a little girl.
