About The Book
Dawn French, number one bestselling author of A Tiny Bit Marvellous and Oh Dear Silvia, returns with her joyously funny new novel, According To YES.
The Foreign Land of the Very Wealthy — otherwise known as Manhattan’s Upper East Side — has its own rigid code of behaviour. It’s a code strictly adhered to by the Wilder-Bingham family.
Emotional displays — unacceptable.
Unruly behaviour — definitely not welcome.
Fun — no thanks.
This is Glenn Wilder-Bingham’s kingdom. A beautifully displayed impeccably edited fortress of restraint.
So when Rosie Kitto, an eccentric thirty-eight-year-old primary school teacher from England, bounces into their lives with a secret sorrow and a heart as big as the city, nobody realises that she hasn’t read the rule book.
For the Wilder-Bingham family, whose lives begin to unravel thread by thread, the consequences are explosive. Because after a lifetime of saying no, what happens when everyone starts saying … yes?
‘I adored According to YES. It’s so different to anything I’ve read in forever, so charming, wise, brilliantly written. I loved it all’ Marian Keyes
‘There is lots of fun to be had reading this book. It’s impossible not to warm to Rosie, a funny and open-hearted woman who acts as a salve and comfort blanket for this unhappy, inhibited family. There’s something quite joyous about the way she unashamedly romps her way through the novel, changing the lives of those around her for the better’ Express
‘French can spin a yarn … which sets According to YES apart from the usual chick-lit template. Think the vicar of Dibley, without the dog collar. YES YES YES indeed’ Independent
