Hamptons Beach Read Of The Day: Beginner's Greek (A Novel)

by CARSON GRIFFITH · August 19, 2009

A chick-lit style novel written by a guy? And a former investment banker/journalist, at that? Well, there's a first. James Collins captures every girl's dream (and apparently some guys too - who knew?!) in Beginner's Greek: A Novel, a story about one man's goal to find true love on a cross-country flight... and doing it. Of course, it's not that easy, and he loses her soon after meeting her, or her phone number at least. Years later, he finds her though, in the arms of his best friend, walking down the aisle (don't worry, I'm not spoiling anything for you). Giving up, he settles for a Francophile that of course, can't compare to his in-flight love. A story about the ups and downs of falling in love and not being able to get what you want, it's nice to see you some guys are on the same page when it comes to romantic comedies. You might just want to share this one with your boyfriend.
