'Tender and spell-binding, Okay Days breaks you all the way open' Annie Lord, author of Notes on Heartbreak

'A perfect Millennial love story . . .

with its acidic dialogue and languid sex scenes. A charming and clever romance, a perfect summer read' Irish Times

'Reminiscent of Sally Rooney . .

. a complex and joyous ode to being in love, messing up and finding your way' Stylist

'A beautifully-observed portrait of self-discovery and uncertain love. Jenny's sharp and evocative prose gave me a feeling of immense nostalgia for London's long summer days' Natasha Brown, author of Assembly

Sam is 28, Swedish, carefree and chaotic.

Doing a work placement in London over the course of three sticky summer months, she falls hard for Lucas, a man she first met as a teenager. Lucas, 27, sensitive and calm, is trying to get a foothold in the adult world while struggling to hold the pieces of his life together. Sam is a gorgeous distraction.

But you can only avoid reality for so long, and both Sam and Lucas know their relationship can't last. Nobody can be this happy forever, surely? Okay Days tells the story of the rise and fall of Sam and Lucas's affection for each other, while looking unflinchingly at male body dysmorphia, women's reproductive rights, and the pitfalls of modern love. When is okay good enough? And what are we willing to lose in the search for a life that is much better than just okay?

'Reading Okay Days is like drinking the ideal lime cordial, sweetness clarified by sharpness' Rowan Hisayo Buchanan, author of Harmless Like You'

A beautiful, bruising novel about love, sex and finding your place in the world.
