Bryony doesn’t mind being single. Which is why she doesn’t understand why she keeps seeing (ok, sleeping with) Ed… who is perfectly fine but also only ok. She resolves to end things only to unceremoniously receive a call whilst in the queue for what report to be the best noodles in town. The caller tells her Ed has died.
Worse yet, he seems to have represented her as his great love. Obviously, it would be rude to correct them. Then she’s invited to the funeral. It would be equally rude to refuse… right?
Probably Nothing is the answer to just how far sheer awkwardness can take someone. Peppered with Lauren Bravo’s irresistible wit it explores the relatable modern conditions of both health anxiety and people pleasing.
'Probably Nothing is wildly, ferociously funny, and so brilliantly observed. It’s also beautiful. Bravo’s book explores every complicated facet of modern family life in a way that feels vivid, warm and real. Finally, someone has written a novel that speaks directly to the recovering people pleaser. This is, without doubt, a future classic. I’m going to be buying people copies of this brilliant book for years to come.' Daisy Buchanan
