Curtis Sittenfeld's follow up to the fabulous Prep is another coming of age tale, although set in an entirely different world to the privileged sphere of boarding school she previously depicted. The Man of My Dreams follows Hannah Gavener through adolescence to her late twenties, delving into the complex relationships she forms with men. If you want a light and fluffy 'boy meets girl' read then this isn't one for you, but if you're after an insightful novel exploring love and relationships then I'd recommend it.

If you like Curtis Sittenfeld you might also like to read books by Robyn Sisman , Sarah Jackman and Kim Edward.

Synopsis

The Man of My Dreams by Curtis Sittenfeld

At what point can you no longer blame your adult failures? Is settling for someone who's not your soul mate an act of maturity or an admission of defeat? And if you move to another state for a man who might not love you back, are you being brave, or pathetic? This novel offers an examination of personal choices that make us who we are.
