Sandra Berlin’s got it all. She’s living in Manhattan, climbing the editorial ladder at the ultrachic fashion magazine Jolie!, and she’s newly engaged to her high school sweetheart, Bucky Ross. Bucky’s her knight in shining WASP armor: ad executive and descendant of Betsy Ross, with whom she’ll live in suburban Tudor splendor and have beautiful children. At least that’s the plan. Until Sandy meets Bucky’s other fiancée. Who tells her about the third.

Sandy’s heartbreak, betrayal, and the excruciating blind dates that follow paint a shrewd, comic, dead-on portrait of the suddenly single life and remind us that even when fantasy crashes head-on into hard reality, love can still surprise us in the most unexpected ways.

Quotes & Awards

  • Me Times Three is witty and wise, an irresistible dissection of love in the city”.

    Joan Didion

  • “A funny and moving coming of age story that is an important recollection of a specific time in this city. It’s a very real tale about trying to be somebody—about who you are, who you pretend to be and who you really want to be. It doesn’t matter how old you are; if you’re single, it’s the truth. I loved it.”

    Sarah Jessica Parker

  • “A fresh and insightful romantic novel with a great heart. Ms. Witchel, with her keen observation and irony, redefines the world of single career women in Manhattan and finds compassion, dignity, and great humor. This is a novel of elegant skill and comic depth.”

    Wendy Wasserstein, author of Shiksa Goddess

  • “Deliciously wrought, with a fun twist and some lovely revenge along the way.”

    New York Times

  • “A story that’s as affecting as it is just plain fun…With its razor-sharp dissections of love and aspiration, Me Times Three instructs as deftly as it entertains.”

    Los Angeles Times

  • “A sardonic, romantic comedy…entertaining [and] delectable.”

    USA Today

  • “A hilarious debut novel…It’s a smarter, meatier Bridget Jones’s Diary that you’ll read in one sitting.”

    Glamour

  • “It boasts an intelligent, snappy heroine, goofy supporting characters, sharp dialogue, and some genuinely touching moments.”

    Entertainment Weekly

  • “Smart, witty, and fast-paced.”

    Library Journal

  • “Expertly mixing humor and tragedy, Witchel’s debut novel is much more than its premise, and ends up being an absorbing, compelling read.”

    " Great book jacket, it really caught my eye. I would not be surprised if this book turns into a lifetime movie. It kept my attention because it was in NYC. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Danielle | 1/10/2014

    " I read this awhile ago but I remember liking it quite a bit, especially the plucky main character. In real life, the author is married to the venerable Frank Rich, columnist for the NY Times. "

    " I actually listened to this book on cd, and found it really shallow. One of the characters is a gay man named Paul and OF COURSE he finds out he has AIDS, but the main character is so wrapped up in herself, she takes his disease and makes it her own drama. ugh. "

    " carino.....una donna che scopre che il fidanzato ha altre donne ma si appoggia la suo miglior amico gay... "
