Publisher Description

Stand-up comedian Michele A'Court rekindles the passion, with a brilliant collection of 'How We Met' stories.

How We Met is based on a collection of 'How We Met' stories - those lovely stories couples love to tell (and we all love to hear) about how they got together. The author's theory: that these stories of how couples meet - the romantic, absurd, serendipitous, convoluted, scandalous, breath-taking moments of connection - help to weave their lives together. Partly as 'proof' that they were meant to begin this couple-journey, and also because in each retelling they go back to those first falling-in-love feelings and rekindle the passion.

The theory is based on a hunch, which itself is based on nothingmore than the author's observations of watching couples as they talk. Michele then tests her thesis out on a neuroscientist and a psychologist, and by the end of the book, has some useful things to say not only about how great love starts,but how it stays great.

Author Biography

Michele A'Court was born in 1961 and is New Zealand's best known female comedian (a term she dislikes, as it makes her sound like a female who happens to be a comedian, rather than just a comedian), with a high profile via regular TV appearances (7 Days, a high-rating current-affairs comedy panel show), a newspaper column, a weekly slot on Radio New Zealand National, occasional contributions to newspapers and magazines, and regular public appearances, festival shows, tours and speaking engagements. She was voted NZ Comedy Guild Comedian of the Decade (Female) in 2010.
