Londoners Ellie and Nick met on the night of 2008's historic presidential election. A cinema buff and devotee of great love stories, Nick always fancied himself the Tom Hanks of his own romantic comedy, and when sparks flew with Ellie that night, he swiftly cast her as the Meg Ryan of his story. They were together four blissful years. But now Ellie has moved out, convinced that the "fire's gone", and Nick is forced to sift through his memories to see where it all went wrong. Was he really the rom-com hero he believes he'd been? Or did this Harry let his Sally down? Peppered with references to beloved movies, Nicholls's charming debut explores how even a hopeless romantic can learn that in real life, love isn't--shouldn't be--like what we see in the movies.
