'Seriously wise, seriously wonderful, seriously comic - your life will be richer for it' Katherine Heiny

Guido and Vicent - third cousins and best friends - spend their time lolling around and wondering who they will marry.

Then, one wet Sunday afternoon in a museum, Gudio meets Holly. Precise about everything, Holly knows what she likes: pressed sheets, tea on a tray - and now, Guido.

Soon after, Vincent falls for his misanthropic new colleague, Misty. She seems completely uninterested in love, until she agrees to go to dinner with Vincent.

This exquisitely well-written and much-beloved novel follows the two couples through courtship, arguments, wedding plans and other perils, as they find a way to be happy (almost) all the time.
