THE AMAZING NEW NOVEL FROM CURTIS SITTENFELD: 'A rollercoaster of modern love and dating' STYLIST

'One of my all-time favourite authors. A brilliantly written, funny page-turner, I want to read it all again' PANDORA SYKES

'I am obsessed. A warm, wise, magnanimous and extremely funny novel. ROMANTIC COMEDY should be prescribed to anyone needing their mood lifted' ELIZABETH DAY

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?

Skewering all our certainties about why we fall in love, ROMANTIC COMEDY is a witty and probing tale of how the heart will follow itself, no matter what anyone says. It is Curtis Sittenfeld at her most sharp, daring and compassionate best.

'Curtis Sittenfeld is in a league of her own' GUARDIAN
'Anyone who reads Sittenfeld will read anything she ever writes' THE TIMES

I am obsessed with this book. A warm, wise, magnanimous and extremely funny novel which made me fall in love with the characters and feel happier about life. Sittenfeld writes with such insight and poignancy about the quirks of the human condition. Romantic Comedy should be prescribed to anyone needing their mood lifted * ELIZABETH DAY *
No-one writes romantic yearning as brilliantly and believably as Curtis Sittenfeld. I could not have adored this book more. * DAISY BUCHANAN, author of INSATIABLE *
A rollercoaster of modern love and dating * STYLIST, Books to look forward to in 2023 *
Probably my favourite proof I've read for 2023, by one of my all-time favourite authors Curtis Sittenfeld... it's a brilliantly written, funny page-turner, I want to read it all again. * PANDORA SYKES *
Biting, pacy and great fun...Set to be as searing and funny as the rest * SUNDAY TIMES, Books to Look Forward to *
A gloriously quick-witted, intelligent love story, with sparkling dialogue and a satisfying plot * THE BOOKSELLER *
One of the most compelling, funny and gorgeous novels I've read in a long time. Curtis Sittenfield is a master of dialogue, and this love story packs serious emotional heft that will leave you rooting for its characters right til the very end. I absolutely flew through it, and wish that I could 'un-read' it if only so I could have the pleasure of reading it for the first time again. * OTEGHA UWAGBA *
I love Curtis Sittenfeld * BRYONY GORDON *
i am excited beyond belief. This is THE literary event of the year for me * MARINA HYDE *
