Product description


"This book is a celebration of the 'magnificent, cruel, sublime, heartbreaking party' that is love. I'm quoting one of my favorite lines from How to Be Single here, and you'll be doing the same as soon as you crack open this delicious feast of a first novel that examines how it is to be single around the world. Liz articulates the quest for love and the nuance of friendship in such a fresh, soulful, humorous, modern, honest voice, you can't help but fall in love with her characters, and with Liz as well." -- Cindy Chupack, author of "The Between Boyfriends Book" and writer/executive producer of "Sex and the City"

"With a brutal honesty and an outrageous sense of humor, Liz Tuccillo achieves the impossible -- she gives a fresh, new voice to the world of the single-and-looking-for-love. Tuccillo forces us to think outside the box while taking us on a trip around the world and into the lives of single women everywhere. She has created a new genre: the chick-lit travelogue." -Josh Safran, Producer, "Gossip Girl"

"Liz Tuccillo's debut novel is part fascinating, hands-and-lips-on anthropological study and part whirlwind trip around the world. But most of all, How To Be Single is a tribute to female friendship with a double dose of hilarity and heart!" -- Claire Cook, author of "Summer Blowout" and "Must Love Dogs"

"A fun read that reminds single girls everywhere that it's fabulous to be single." -- Plum Sykes, author of "Bergdorf Blondes"

"In her energetic fiction debut, [Tuccillo] follows the dating lives of five single New York women, one of whom, narrator Julie, is writing a book about how bachelorettes across the world manage. The subsequent stories of courtship, marriage and romantic expectations ƒare revealing and compelling." -- "Publishers Weekly"

"Tuccillo, author of the enormously popular "He's Just Not That Into You" (2004), ventures into fictional territory that distinctly echoes "Sex and the City."..Both entertaining and thoughtful, Tuccillo's debut is a must read for women navigating the sometimes treacherous dating world." -- "Booklist"

"Tuccillo, a former story editor of HBO's "Sex and the City," shows that she can tell a story on the page as well as she can on the small screen. Her novel cleverly moves back and forth between the heroine's travels all over the world to her friend's dealing with the everyday minutiae back home in New York City." -- "Romantic Times"

Product Description

Soon to be a major motion picture starring Dakota Johnson, Rebel Wilson, Alison Brie, Leslie Mann, and Damon Wayans Jr.! From the coauthor of He’s Just Not That Into You and a former story editor for Sex and the CityHow to Be Single is about one woman’s attempts to navigate a world filled with ever-evolving definitions of love.

Julie Jenson is a 37-year-old book publicist in New York. She's also single - and has been for six years. When her friend Georgia's husband dumps her for a samba teacher, Julie gathers her four single girlfriends for one momentous night of New York singlehood. Following a night that started with Steaks & Martinis and ended with topless bar dancing and a trip to the hospital, Julie decides that she's fed up with New York's singles scene once and for all. Her friends are all beautiful, smart and successful - but between the five of them, there's more dysfunction and disappointment than she can handle. So she quits her job and sets off to find how women around the world deal with the dreaded phenomenon of the Single Life. From Paris to India, to Iceland and back to New York, Julie finds out how to make her crazy life work.

Written in Tuccillo's pitch-perfect and hilarious voice, HOW TO BE SINGLE is the ultimate novel for the single girl in us all.
