THE SUNDAY TIMES AND NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLERA REESE'S BOOK CLUB PICK'A hilarious, sweet, smart read that you're going to love!' REESE WITHERSPOON'A rollercoaster of modern love and dating' STYLIST'Biting, pacy, great fun' SUNDAY TIMESA TV script writer thinks she's done with 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... After a series of heartbreaks, 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. -----------------WHAT READERS ARE SAYING:'This book is heavenly. i just had a hilariously enjoyable masterclass in writing' *****'Hilarious and screwball and warm' *****'A book that helps transport you away' *****'She makes the characters much more real than ordinary romcoms*****Sunday Times and New York Times bestseller, April 2023Reese Witherspoon Book Club Pick, April 2023
