The major new novel from the global bestselling author of Rodham and American wife- a subversive and tender love story with a twist THE BRAND NEW NOVEL FROM CURTIS SITTENFELD 'Curtis Sittenfeld is in a league of her own' GUARDIAN 'Anyone who ever reads Sittenfeld will read anything she ever writes' THE TIMES 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 TV 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 to date 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 favourite writers' KATE ATKINSON, author of Life after Life and Shrines of Gaiety
