Holliday Grainger gives voice to Alderton's Ghosts

Holliday Grainger will read the audiobook version of Dolly Alderton's eagerly-awaited debut novel Ghosts (Fig Tree).

Grainger, currently starring in the BBC adaptation of "Lethal White" by Robert Galbraith (a.k.a. J K Rowling), will narrate the book for release by Penguin Random House Audio on 8th October 2020, ahead of the hardback publication on 15th October.

Ghosts tells the story of Nina Dean, who has arrived at her early thirties as a successful food writer with loving friends and family, plus a new home and neighbourhood. When she meets Max, a beguiling romantic hero who tells her on date one that he's going to marry her, it feels like all is going to plan. 

According to the publisher, it is a novel “about love and memory, ageing and identity, dads and dating, friends and family and friends with families, filled with whip-smart observations about relationships, family, memory, home and how we live now”.

Grainger said: “Dolly Alderton’s writing is incredibly intimate, tender, and observant. Ghosts is a fantastic novel about friendship, family, and love, that felt incredibly real to me. It was an honour to be part of Nina’s story, and I hope listeners enjoy the audiobook as much as I enjoyed recording it.”

Alderton added: “I am a huge fan of Holliday Grainger, so it is such an honour to have her voice bring life to the audiobook of Ghosts.”
