About the Author

Sarah Akinterinwa is a British cartoonist, illustrator, and writer. She started her career in 2020, during the first lockdown of the COVID-19 pandemic by creating the comic Oyin and Kojo, which now features in the New Yorker. Her work explores dating, relationships, identity, politics, and navigating adult life as a young woman of color.


"I wish I had read this book once a week in my twenties. Sarah Akinterinwa compassionately addresses so many contemporary dating pitfalls and pratfalls. And her medicine for our romantic maladies goes down easy, with the help of truly hilarious comics. All in all, much funnier (and cheaper) than a decade of therapy."
- Emma Allen, humor and cartoon editor, The New Yorker
"I love Sarah's voice--a wry wit that pairs well with a clean drawing style. In her new book, she treats us to her cartoon people and their humorous outlook on life, and in the process passes along some very sage advice about being a woman in today's world."
- Liza Donnelly, New Yorker cartoonist and writer, author of Very Funny Ladies: The New Yorker's Women Cartoonists
"Sarah is brilliant and reading her book is like being consoled by your funny, smart friend who just gets it on a deep level."
- Samantha Rothenberg (Violet Clair), illustrator
"This book is a warm hug of encouragement and understanding for anyone feeling unlucky in love. Akinterinwa's insightful and logical commentary on dating paired with her on-point cartoons creates a captivating and much-needed dating pep talk."
- Gabi Conti, author of Twenty Guys You Date in Your Twenties and creator of the podcast Am I Dating a Serial Killer?
"Sarah Akinterinwa's kind, clear-eyed book should be pressed into the hands of any young person who feels defeated by dating in our digital age."
- Blythe Roberson, author of How to Date Men When You Hate Men
"Why You'll Never Find the One is a wise, funny guidebook that will be your companion through the indignities of the dating scene--while quietly showing you the way to fall in love with yourself. Sarah Akinterinwa's insightful words and delightful drawings get to the heart of what it's like to be single and endlessly searching. They will show you that you're not alone in this journey."
- Liana Finck, New Yorker cartoonist and author of Let There Be Light
"Finding love gets a little easier with New Yorker cartoonist Akinterinwa's insightful and fresh guide to dating that reframes conventional ideas of romance and pairs them with heavy doses of self-love....Give it a read before swiping right."
- Publishers Weekly
