THE SUNDAY TIMES AND NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER A Reese's Book Club Pick 2023 'A hilarious, sweet, smart read that you're going to love!' REESE WITHERSPOON 'A rollercoaster of modern love and dating' STYLIST A TV script writer thinks she's over romance, until an unlikely love interest upends all her assumptions: a humorous, sharp and tender novel from the bestselling author of Eligible , 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. ----------------- '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 'Curtis Sittenfeld is in a league of her own' GUARDIAN 'Anyone who reads Sittenfeld will read anything she ever writes' THE TIMES
