Description

A TV script writer thinks she’s over romance, until an unlikely love interest upends all her assumptions: a humorous, subversive and tender-hearted novel from the New York Times and Sunday Times bestselling author of Rodham, American Wife and Prep.

Life is (not)* a Romantic Comedy…

With a series of heartbreaks under her belt, Sally Milz – successful script writer for a legendary late-night TV comedy show – has long abandoned the search for love.

But when her friend and fellow writer begins to date a glamorous actress, he joins the growing club of interesting but average-looking men who get romantically involved with accomplished, beautiful women.

Sally channels her annoyance into a sketch, poking fun at this ‘social rule’.

The reverse never happens for a woman.

Then Sally meets Noah, a pop idol with a reputation for dating models.

But this isn’t a romantic comedy – it’s real life. Would someone like him ever date someone like her?

It is Curtis Sittenfeld at her most sharp, daring and compassionate best.
