Celestino Deleyto. The Secret Life of Romantic Comedy. Manchester: Manchester University
Press, 2009 (189 páginas)

The Secret Life of Romantic Comedy offers a new approach to one of the most popular and
resilient genres in the history of Hollywood. Steering away form the rigidity and
ideological determinism of traditional accounts of the genre, this book advocates a more
flexible theory, which allows the student to explore the presence of the genre in
unexpected places, extending the concept to encompass films that are not usually
considered romantic comedies.
