I’m writing a book about modern romance. 
From The Atlantic:
Comedian Aziz Ansari, otherwise known as “Tom Haverford,” is working on a first book, The Penguin Press announced today. 
But the book won’t be quite what you think—it’s not a memoir (at least not directly), and it isn’t about Parks and Recreation or the actor’s film career. Ansari’s getting more academic than that. The book will be an investigation into the single life in 2013, a look at how “the basic issues facing a single person—whom we meet, how we meet them, and what happens next—have been radically altered by new technologies.” Indeed they have been.
In other words, this thankfully won’t just be a straightforward memoir. Apparently Ansari’s chatting with academics and conducting “original research” to make this work. But his pitch still carries the rhythms of good standup. Via Penguin’s press release:

Ansari said, “You know when you text someone you’re romantically interested in and you don’t hear anything back and then you see them post a photo of a pizza on Instagram? That’s exactly what I want this book to deal with. These are strange conundrums that no generation has ever faced before and it’s a fascinating jumping off point for what I hope will be a very interesting book about modern courtship.”
