Eleanor Oliphant Is Completely Fine has rocketed to No. 1 in the UK, selling over 18,000 copies in three days.

This is a monumental achievement for a debut writer, but then again Gail Honeyman is a powerful talent, and she has given us a character that will be talked about for years to come.


We’ve certainly been shouting about it for a while, so rather than listing again the huge number of accolades the book has received since its publication in May, you can click here, here and here. In the meantime, we would like to say thank you to Gail for being so utterly fabulous. You have worked tirelessly and without complaint in promoting your book, and no one deserves this more. We have adored this opportunity to work with you, and to champion a truly unique book – we love it, Reese Witherspoon loves it, and most importantly legions of readers around the world do too.
