Lisa Jewell's 6 best books

Lisa Jewell was born and raised in north London, where she lives with her husband and two daughters. She is the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, and USA Today bestselling author of at least twelve novels.

One of the author's six best books, as shared at the Daily Express:
HIGH FIDELITY by Nick Hornby

A fantastically funny, sharp novel and massively modern at the time. It’s about a guy who runs a record store and he’s trying to work out why he split up with his girlfriend. It’s about people and a setting I understood. It also ignited a sense I’d had that I’d like to write my own novel.
