I SUCK AT GIRLS by Justin Halpern
On 5th June 2012, I Suck at Girls, the long awaited sequel to the International bestseller and Twitter phenomenon, Sh*t My Dad Says, hits the shelves (Published in paperback by Pan Macmillan, £11.99).
Crossing the warmth of the Wonder Years, the Indie charm of Napoleon Dynamite and the observational humour of David Sedaris, I Suck at Girls is the follow-up to one of the hottest comedy debuts of all time, a hilarious and candid book chronicling the author’s (mis)adventures in life and love.
Shortly after Sh*t My Dad Says rose to prominence, comic writer Justin Halpern decided to propose to his girlfriend Amanda. But, not before taking his father to a restaurant and asking him for advice, to which he responded “Good for you. I think I’m going to get the romaine and watercress salad. I know I always get it, but it’s tasty, and what the hell, right?” Then follows a trip down memory lane; shedding light on the author’s first haphazard foray into romance when he was just seven, his humiliating teenage encounters, right through to his awkward attempts to find lust and love in his twenties. I Suck at Girls is a hysterical ‘warts and all’ account of what it is like to go through life being spectacularly unsuccessful in relationships and courting the fairer sex.
Interspersed with yet more comedic gems from Sam Halpern, whose razor-sharp, foul-mouthed wit made the debut novel such a success and earned the author over three million Twitter followers, I Suck at Girls refreshingly lays bare the most common relationship mishaps from a male perspective.
“There are six billion people on the planet. Say half are women. Now, taking into account age ranges, even if you were picky, you could probably be happily married to any one of 150 million different women.” – Sam Halpern on marriage
