For fans of HBO's Sex and the City - or anyone who's been on a bad blind date - comes this hysterical look at life in the single lane. She refers to it as "the streak": 1001 days without sex - 79 days shorter than the Kennedy administration - which prompted Suzanne Schlosberg's friends to dub her the Cal Ripken of celibacy. Given the common belief among single women that all the good men are married. Suzanne's predicament is hardly extraordinary, but what she does to end the streak makes for a hilarious tale. Suzanne hits bottom when her younger sister gets engaged, leaving her less than a year to find a date for the wedding. She shifts into overdrive, experimenting with Internet dating, speed dating, and other bizarre 21st century matchmaking rituals. But after enduring every indignity of singlehood - attending the endless parade of other people's weddings, paying for birth control that goes to no use, and fielding questions from unrelenting family members about potential prospects - she ultimately learns to ask herself: Does she really need a man to find happiness?
