One Day by David Nicholls

One Day is the story of a relationship told over thirty years. Emma and Dexter had a fling on the night of their graduation from the University of Edinburgh. They keep in touch over the years and their letters form part of the narrative. Their relationship becomes a warm friendship and following divorces and failed relationships they get together when they are in their late 30s.

The book is set in London and reflects the popular culture and trends of the 1980s and 90s sometimes cringingly so. It reminds me of The Timetravellers Wife.
