Romantic Comedy by Curtis Sittenfeld

Meet Sally Milz – a successful script writer for a legendary late-night TV comedy show.

After a series of heartbreaks, she has abandoned her search for love. However, when a fellow writer begins dating an actress, he joins the club of interesting but average-looking men who are romantically involved with accomplished and stunning women.

Sally channels her displeasure of the double standard into a fun sketch. After all, 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. Someone like him would never date someone like her. Or would he?

Romantic Comedy is a sharp, witty love story with a twist. It’s a brilliantly written rollercoaster of modern love and dating during a pandemic. Author Curtis Sittenfeld cleverly uses humour to explore how the heart will follow itself, no matter what anyone says.

Curtis Sittenfeld is a bestselling novelist whose short stories have appeared in the New Yorker, Esquire, Oprah Magazine and the New York Times magazine.
