Synopsis of the book «Romantic Comedy» by Curtis Sittenfeld
In “Romantic Comedy” by Curtis Sittenfeld, Sally Milz is a successful sketch writer for “The Night Owls,” a late-night live comedy show. After experiencing heartbreaks in the past, Sally has given up on love and is content with the occasional hook-up and a close relationship with her stepfather. However, when her colleague Danny Horst begins dating the glamorous actor Annabel, Sally can’t help but notice the trend of average-looking men dating stunning and successful women.
Sally channels her annoyance into a sketch called the “Danny Horst Rule,” poking fun at this phenomenon while underscoring the unlikelihood of it happening in reverse for women. Enter Noah Brewster, a dreamily handsome pop music sensation with a reputation for dating models, who signs on as both host and musical guest for their show. Sally is immediately dazzled by Noah’s charm and they hit it off while collaborating on sketches. As their connection grows, Sally starts to wonder if there might actually be something between them. But in real life, someone like him could never date someone like her… or could he?
Sittenfeld expertly explores the neurosis-inducing and heart-fluttering wonder of love, while slyly dissecting the social rituals of romance and gender relations in the modern age. “Romantic Comedy” is a hilarious, observant, and deeply tender novel that will keep readers laughing and swooning until the very end.
