Dolan and Heisey delve into the complicated world of relationships – with yourself, friends and romantic partners – as they discuss their novels. Dolan’s The Happy Couple follows a cast of characters in the run-up to a wedding, as they all try and find their happily ever after. Heisey’s Really Good, Actually follows Maggie, getting divorced as she approaches her 30th birthday, and having to rediscover who she really is. Heisey, an author and TV writer, and Dolan, a novelist, discuss writing love and friendship with humour, relatability and vulnerability.
Dolan and Heisey talk to publisher, curator and writer Nia Thomas.
