From the Publisher"Cathy Day has delivered an immensely readable and thought-provoking meditation on what it means to be smart and single in the early twenty-first century. Comeback Season reinvigorates feminist literature for the modern woman — and through the unlikely lens of football, no less. This book deserves many stadiums' worth of readers."
— Alicia Erian, author of Towelhead
"A moving, funny, and thoroughly absorbing account of one writer's quest for love. With frankness and verve, Cathy Day navigates online dating, location blues, and other hurdles that single professional women face. The result — at once a reckoning and a study of longings held and choices made — is an irresistible read that will have you cheering for Cathy Day."
— Bich Minh Nguyen, author of Stealing Buddha's Dinner
"If anything could possibly be sweeter than a Colts Super Bowl win, it's reading Cathy Day's Comeback Season. Tighter than a Manning spiral, truer than a Vinatieri kick, more poignant than a Dungy halftime speech, this book is a winner."
— Jon Wertheim, Sports Illustrated senior writer, author of Running the Table, and native Hoosier
"Cathy Day's story of her search for love (or, at the very least, a Colts win) is as compelling as a good novel — it has suspense, surprising twists, and, in Cathy herself, a protagonist both complex and compelling. I root for the Colts, but by the last pages of Comeback Season I was rooting for Cathy more; just like our favorite team, she leaves it all on the field."
— Christopher Coake, author of We're in Trouble
"For all of us ladies coming back for another season as singles, Cathy Day has written a smart, funny, and touching book. I don't know football, but I know dating, and Cathy Day has got it right. What I love most is that she does that almost impossible thing: she offers us a realistic ending that's also filled with hope. This is a terrific book."
— Shannon Olson, author of Welcome to My Planet
