內容簡介

◎ HBO影集《欲望城市》前執行編審、《He’s Just Not That Into You》共同作者之一的Liz Tuccillo首部小說
◎ 改編電影即將於二月上映

「Liz Tuccillo以殘酷的真實與極端的幽默,達成了不可能的事──她為單身者尋找愛情的故事,注入新聲音。Tuccillo迫使我們跳脫框架思考,同時帶領讀者=踏上環遊世界之旅,以及各地單身女子的世界。」──《花邊教主》製作人Josh Safran

三十七歲單身的Julie Jenson,是紐約出版社的公關。當她的朋友Georgia的丈夫因為愛上一位森巴舞老師而離開她,她強迫Julie召集一場單身女子夜晚外出趴,好提醒她無拘無束的單身狀態有多麼有趣。

然而,夜晚結束後,反而對Julie產生了反效果。她受夠了單身狀態帶來的失望,辭掉工作後,踏上一趟旅程,探索世界各地的女人們,都如何面對這種恐怖現象。從巴黎、巴西、雪梨、北京、孟買到雷克雅維克,Julie墜入情網、歷經心碎、看見世界,更學到她從未想像過的許多事情。同時間,她的好友們留在紐約,面對一連串的問題——糟糕的相親、無愛的婚約、撫養權之爭、單親媽媽狀態,以及愛人的死亡。

延續《欲望城市》的風格,Liz Tuccillo以幽默、易使讀者產生共鳴的口吻,探索不斷演化、愛的各種定義。

It's the most annoying question and they just can't help asking you. You'll be asked it at family gatherings, weddings, and on first dates. And you'll ask yourself far too often. It's the question that has no good answer. It's the question that when people stop asking it, makes you feel even worse: Why are you single?On a brisk October morning in New York, Julie Jenson, a single thirty-eight-yearold book publicist, is on her way to work when she gets a hysterical phone call from her friend Georgia. Reeling from her husband's announcement that he is leaving her for a samba teacher, Georgia convinces a reluctant Julie to organize a fun girls' night out with all their single friends to remind her why it is so much fun not to be tied down.But the night, which starts with steaks and martinis and ends with a trip to the hospital, becomes a wake-up call for Julie. Because none of her friends seems to be having much fun right now: Alice, a former legal aid attorney, has recently quit her job to start dating for a living; Serena is so busy becoming a fully realized person that she can't find time to look for a mate; and Ruby, a curvy and compassionate woman, has been mourning the death of her cat for months.So, fed up with the dysfunction and disappointments of being single in Manhattan, Julie quits her job and sets off to find out how women around the world are dealing with this dreaded phenomenon. From Paris to Rio to Sydney, Bali, Beijing, Mumbai, and Reykjavk, Julie falls in love, gets her heart broken, sees the world, and learns more than she ever dreamed possible. Back in New York, her friends are grappling with their own issues -- bad blind dates, loveless engagements, custody battles, and single motherhood. Through their journeys, all these women fight to redefine their vision of love, happiness, and a fulfilled life.Written in Liz Tuccillo's pitch-perfect, hilarious, and relatable voice, " How to Be Single" is the ultimate novel for the adventurer in us all.
