A hilarious and refreshingly honest foray into modern dating, Age, Sex, Location is Bridget Jones's Diary for HBO's Girls generation. The last thing twenty-eight-year-old Lauren is looking for is love, so why do the men she's dating assume she's searching for The One? With men running for the hills, Lauren takes drastic action and turns her love life into an experiment, vowing to follow the advice of a different dating guide every month. From releasing her inner siren to swearing off sex completely, Lauren will follow The Rules and play The Game, all with the help of her disapproving best friend and her newly loved-up housemate. But as she searches for the holy grail of no-strings sex minus the heartache, Lauren soon realizes that dating is more complicated than just swiping right - and that the things you run from tend to always catch up with you... Praise for Age, Sex Location: 'Great fun - a gripping read and very touching' Marian Keyes 'So smart and sassy but with a great big heart, too. You'll go through this book as quickly as Lauren "swipes left" on her iPhone' - Naomi Wood, author of Mrs Hemingway 'Funny, fresh, sassy and totally captures the dating zeitgeist. If you loved Girls, you'll love this!' - Katy Regan, author of The Story of You 'With some brilliant one-liners, great dialogue and a main character you want to go out drinking with - this book was a winning combination for me. If you like your chick-lit edgy, cool and genuinely funny then look no further.' - Rosie Blake, author of How to Get a (Love) Life 'Honest, funny and cringingly relatable.' Glamour 'Funny and honest this is a refreshing look at the modern dating scene' Essentials 'Laugh-out-loud funny' Elle 'Melissa's engaging voice and sharp humour lift this above other dating novels' Bella 'A clever premise, wittily delivered in upbeat, wisecracking style. Lauren's encounters provide a colourful snapshot of modern men and dating mores, while her breezy promiscuity makes Bridget Jones look positively nun-like. All good, dirty fun - and there's a great twist to how she gets her guy in the end. American Pimentel writes lyrically of her adopted city, and her insights into the British are as spot-on as they are hilarious' Daily Mail 'Witty frank and candid, this book takes the reader on a hilarious tour throught the world of modern dating' Heat 'Frank, refreshing...such a satisfying read' Stylist Melissa grew up in a small town in Massachusetts in a house without cable and therefore much of her childhood was spent watching 1970s British comedy on public television. At twenty-two, she made the move to London and has lived there happily for ten years, though has sadly never come across the Ministry of Funny Walks. Before meeting her fiance, she spent much of her time trawling the London dating scene for clean, non-sociopathic sexual partners and blogging about it, which became the inspiration for her first novel. These days, she spends much of her time reading in the various pubs of Stoke Newington and engaging in a long-standing emotional feud with their disgruntled cat, Welles. She works in publishing.

In 1919 a generation of young women discovered that there were, quite simply, not enough men to go round, and the statistics confirmed it. After the 1921 Census, the press ran alarming stories of the 'Problem of the Surplus Women - Two Million who can never become Wives...'. This book is about those women, and about how they were forced, by a tragedy of historic proportions, to stop depending on men for their income, their identity and their future happiness.

Die junge Amerikanerin Lauren Cunningham lebt seit Kurzem in London. Mit der quirligen Lucy teilt sie sich eine kleine Wohnung sowie die Höhen und Tiefen des Alltags. Zu den Tiefen zählt für Laura derzeit das Kapitel „Männer“. Bis ein genialer Plan ihrem Liebesleben auf die Sprünge helfen soll: Jeden Monat will Lauren die Ratschläge eines Dating-Ratgebers ausprobieren – von „Die Kunst, den Mann fürs Leben zu finden“ aus den Neunzigerjahren über „Charmante Spielregeln für die Frau von Welt“ aus dem Jahr 1928 bis zu „Mrs Humphreys Handbuch der feinen Sitte für junge Frauen“ von 1897. Die Folgen sind höchst turbulent ... Melissa Pimentel wurde durch eigene Erfahrungen zu diesem Romandebüt inspiriert, das auf Deutsch zunächst unter dem Titel „Das Dating-Projekt" (Manhattan Verlag) erschienen ist.

Ein rasantes Ferienabenteuer Eigentlich will Marcus im Sommer gar nicht in die Ferien fahren. Aber seine Mutter schleppt ihn an den Strand ihrer Kindheit, an die Diamond Beach, in einen alten stinkenden Wohnwagen. Was sich allerdings im »Keller« dieses Wohnwagens befindet, lässt nicht nur Marcus die Haare zu Berge stehen. Es ist, als würden er und seine Freunde in verrückte Traumwelten entführt, ob auf einen turbulenten Jahrmarkt, ein cooles Bandkonzert oder in eine Wellnessoase mit pinken Katzen, die ihnen Fußmassagen verabreichen. Doch kaum in der Traumwelt angelangt, entwickelt sich diese schon zum Albtraum, aus dem es kein Entrinnen mehr gibt. Denn wie gelangen sie zurück zur Diamond Beach, in ihr normales Leben?
