About the Author

New York Times bestselling novelist Curtis Sittenfeld is a master of romance, coming-of-age stories, and the tender phase of life where the two converge. Her debut, Prep, chronicles the fraught social politics in a posh New England boarding school and, in the words of fellow author Jennifer Egan, “invites us inside the fearsome echo chamber of adolescent self-consciousness.” Sittenfeld's more recent novels include Eligible, a modern retelling of Pride and Prejudice set against the improbable backdrop of Cincinnati, Ohio, and Rodham, an alternate history political novel about Hillary Clinton. Her latest, Romantic Comedy, is set in the exacting and sometimes cutthroat world of late-night sketch comedy. Jaded sketch writer Sally Milz has sworn off love – until a pop star walks onto her sound stage and rewrites the script. In a starred review, Booklist raves: “Sittenfeld’s meta-romance is an utterly perfect version of itself, a self-aware and pandemic-informed love story that’s no less romantic for being either.”
