"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"
