BookBar and Firmdale Hotels Present Curtis Sittenfeld and Natasha Lunn
We are so excited to be partnering with Firmdale Hotels to host two of BookBar's most loved authors in conversation. Curtis Sittenfeld joins us on the London leg of her UK tour to talk about her brand new novel 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 will be joined by the bestselling author of Conversations on Love, Natasha Lunn, to discuss comedy, romance, writing and our enduring love of the romantic comedy.
Join us on Wednesday 19th April at 7pm at Firmdale's Charlotte Street Hotel.
