You are a failed novelist about to turn 50. A wedding invitation arrives in the mail: Your boyfriend of the past nine years is engaged to someone else. You can't say yes - it would be too awkward - and you can't say no - it would look like defeat. On your desk are a series of invitations to half-baked literary events around the world. Question: How do you arrange to skip town? Answer: You accept them all.

I’ve listened to it twice and I’m sure I’ll listen again. I can’t recommend this book enough. A hopeless comedic romantic story about love. It’s hilarious and beautiful. Enjoy!
