AuthorSophie Kipner
Publication Date28 Jun 2018
Book DescriptionMeet Tabitha Gray, a delusional girl from Topanga, California, who redefines what it means to be a truly hopeless romantic. Tabby suffers from an aggressive strain of cock-eyed optimism - no amount of failure, embarrassment or humiliation can dent her fierce belief that real, true, lasting love is just around the corner. Where most people think, fantasize and dream, Tabby says, feels and does. Whether waiting in her lingerie for Harrison Ford to open the door of his hotel room; following Al Pacino around a Russian bathhouse; seeking passion with a blind man on the advice of a wise old woman with dementia; or sending intimate photos to a random sexter with an apparently charming dick, Tabby refuses to be crushed by her many misadventures. In this warmly witty debut novel, Sophie Kipner takes a satirical look at the extremity of romantic desperation, and pays tribute to the deep human need to keep on heroically searching for love despite our many absurdities.
Editorial ReviewFunny and upbeat, simply the best women's fiction I've read in years. * The Sun * "Hilarious . . . Kipner writes beautifully, is emotionally intelligent and has a keen eye for detail - the more absurd the better. The result is a different, occasionally deranged and always very clever read. I loved every minute." * Daily Mail * "Imagine Bridget Jones. On a sugar high. Constantly . . . If you're looking for a romping romcom with which to escape the knocks of everyday life, this one's your guy." * The Pool *
