Lynda Curnyn’s second novel, "Engaging Men," is a breezy comedy that follows the angst-ridden Angela DiFranco, a struggling actress, who mines her friends, ex-boyfriends and raucous Italian-American family in Marine Park for some not-always-sage advice on how to provoke her current boyfriend, Kirk, into popping the question.

While she schemes and plots to get Kirk, a software designer, to buy her a ring - a symbol of the emotional security and dual income she’s craving, 31-year-old Angie fights her way through agonizing bouts of self-discovery. Luckily her mother is waiting to comfort her with bowls of pastina.

A "Sex and the City" episode for the bridge and tunnel set, Curnyn’s paperback is (literally) light reading and a guilty pleasure to be sneaked out on a beach blanket.

Curnyn, a Brooklyn native, will read from "Engaging Men" (Red Dress Ink, $12.95) at Barnes & Noble (106 Court St. at State Street) on June 9 at 7 pm. The event is free. For more information, call (718) 246-4996.
