What: Shadyside Meeting - "How to be SIngle: A Novel" by Liz Tuccillo

When: August 18,[masked]:30 PM

Red Room
134 S. Highland Ave. Shadyside
Pittsburgh, PA 15206

Didn't realize until today that we picked the same book as Cranberry! Can't believe that's the first time that's happened in two years :)

Our book for August is "How to be Single: A Novel" by Liz Tuccillo.

From Publishers Weekly
The sassy coauthor of He's Just Not That into You and former executive story editor for Sex and the City stays on familiar ground for her energetic fiction debut. It 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. A Yahoo-sponsored trip sent Tuccillo traveling the world interviewing women in preparation for her novel; Julie embarks on a similar journey while her four friends duke it out on the New York dating scene. The subsequent stories of courtship, marriage and romantic expectations from Julie's travels are revealing and compelling, but the narrator's interviews quickly give way to her own international affair. The friends back home engage in familiar behavior: the postdivorce fling, the forbidden workplace romance, the comfortable but boring relationship and the quirky pet as substitute-boyfriend. The women's plucky points-of-view are nicely intermingled, with Julie as the woman who ties them all together in Carrie-like fashion. Occasional shifts to issues like poverty in India, however, work against the book's strengths. (June)
