Giveaway: Down With Love by Babara Novak

Behold: behind the door...

Down with Love
by Barbara Novak
aka Eve Ahlert

Published: 2003
Publisher: Harper Paperbacks
Genre: Comedy, Romance
Paperback: 288 pages
Rating: 5

Description from the amazon:
Abstain from love ...
Indulge in chocolate ...
Enjoy sex à la carte!
Can a woman living in the early '60s lead such a life?

Barbara Novak believed so and made it the premise of her revolutionary bestseller -- a feminist manifesto inviting women to say no to love and yes to career, self-fulfillment, and independence.

Follow Barbara as she conquers the bestseller lists and quickly becomes the target of notorious ladies' man Catcher Block, a hotshot journalist determined to prove her book a lie.

What happens when the woman with all the answers meets the man of many questions?

Filled with frantic roundelays, wild instances of mistaken identities, and ever-changing perceptions about love and sex, this tantalizing tell-all—penned by Novak herself -- provides the low-down on her showdown with this man-about-town.

Inside you'll find:

Scandalous passages from the book that started it all.

An excerpt from the latest issue of Now, the magazine Barbara started as a follow-up to her groundbreaking book.

Catcher's unpredictable exposé on the mystifying Miss Novak.

So wacky is this tale of love that it inspired a soon-to-be-released movie by Twentieth Century Fox starring Renée Zellweger and Ewan McGregor!

That’s right, this is the story of a book that inspired a love, which inspired a movie, which inspired this book!

My two-bits:
In-a-word(s): à la carte
Super cute book that is just as cute as the movie.

Also included within are photos from the film.

Did you know Ewan was in this...
