'The book of the summer . . . Kept me rapt until the final page' * THE TIMES * 'A sharp, smart, witty modern love story. I loved it' - David Nicholls, author of ONE DAY * 'More than lives up to the hype . . . Likely to fill the Sally-Rooney-shaped hole in many readers' lives' - IRISH TIMES * 'Droll, shrewd and unafraid - a winning debut' - Hilary Mantel, author of WOLF HALL * 'I've been pushing Exciting Times on everyone I know. Some of Dolan's pithy observations of her characters are the best I've read since Edward St Aubyn' - OBSERVER * 'A frankly sensational book' - Pandora Sykes on THE HIGH LOW * 'In the tradition of Dorothy Parker, Joan Rivers and Nora Ephron . . . I found myself purring with pleasure . . . This is comic writing at the highest level' - Craig Brown, DAILY MAIL

When you leave Ireland aged 22 to spend your parents' money, it's called a gap year. When Ava leaves Ireland aged 22 to make her own money, she's not sure what to call it, but it involves:- a badly-paid job in Hong Kong, teaching English grammar to rich children;- Julian, who likes to spend money on Ava and lets her move into his guest room;- Edith, who Ava meets while Julian is out of town and actually listens to her when she talks;- money, love, cynicism, unspoken feelings and unlikely connections. Exciting times ensue.
