Gail Honeyman's heartwarming and heartbreaking new novel - this year's bestselling fiction debut.

Eleanor Oliphant leads a simple life. She wears the same clothes each day, eats the same lunch at work, and buys two bottles of vodka to drink each weekend. She is fine, completely fine. But one simple act of kindness is about to shatter the walls Eleanor has carefully built around herself.

Today: Eleanor thinks she's found love, in the shape of local singer Johnnie Lomond. But some appearance-related improvements are needed urgently...
