“Finding a partner in crime when it comes to navigating your love life can be challenging. Which is exactly why Kayli Stollak turned to her Granny Gail when she decided to jump into the online dating scene in New York City.”
“As much an homage to her sharp-tongued grandmother as it is an experiment in modern-day romance.”
“Maverick had his Goose. Comedian Cat Davis had Mary Louise Parker. Steve Carrell’s Andy had not one but three wingmen looking out for him. But blogger Kayli Stollak may have the wingman that tops them all: her grandmother.”
“It’s hard not to fall in love with a buddy-cop dating memoir with a tough-as-nails wise-cracking grandmother and her thoughtful, self-deprecating granddaughter. The result is a genuinely sweet, yet hilarious story about two women, generations apart, attempting to solve the mystery of love. I was hooked immediately and can’t wait for both Kayli’s and Granny’s follow-up memoir!”
Granny Is My Wingman chronicles Kayli Stollak’s and her seventy-five-year-old granny’s misadventures in online dating. And this ain’t no ordinary granny. Granny Gail is a ball-busting, sh*t-talking, gossipy yenta with an anecdote or piece of unsolicited advice for every situation.
What ensues is a hilarious tour through the obstacles of modern love: drunken hookups, late-night Facebook stalking, breathy phone calls with geriatric suitors, and the occasional rude dude.
While Kayli powers through a marathon of OkCupid dates—the corporate drone married to his BlackBerry, the nail-biting thirty-three-year-old who still lives at home with his mom, the serial online dater—we learn about Granny’s romantic past and the bittersweet affair she carried on, even while married, for more than thirty years. The two women cheer each other on and become even closer as they share their dating exploits, learning that the hunt for happiness is the same whether you’re twenty-five or seventy-five.
Fresh, funny, and honest, Granny Is My Wingman is a book for anyone who has ever found love, lost it, and been crazy enough to do it all over again.
