About the Author:

Isabel Wolff is a British freelance journalist. Her articles have appeared in many British national newspapers, including The Evening Standard. Her popular Tiffany Trott column ran in the Daily Telegraph. Wolff is single and lives in London.

From Publishers Weekly:

In this hilarious and distinctly British debut novel, 37-year-old Tiffany Trott, a recently dumped London copy writer, takes desperate measures to find Mr. Right, or at least Mr. "ok-looking-bordering-on-the-almost-acceptable." Armed with expensive cosmetics and designer duds, Trott vows to waste no time on golfers, "commitophobes," cross-dressers, or men with the distasteful names Terry, Kevin or Duane. Wolff cleverly chronicles the inevitable disillusionments befalling Trott as she responds to personals ads, attends singles events, signs up at introduction agencies and goes on a long list of blind datesAonly to meet the likes of a lecherous television reporter and a "Seriously Successful" married man. Trott's compulsive list making, large circle of friends and unique ability to commiserate with household appliances set up Wolff's one-liners. Her distinctive humor is consistent, most memorably in Trott's experience as birthing coach to an unmarried friendAshe graciously accepts the assumption that she is a lesbian partner. Quaint English vocabularyA"nosh," "knackered," "beastly," "pernicketiness"Awill add to the amusement for stateside readers. (Aug.)
