Actor, comedian and now writer, Aziz Ansari, appeared at the Strand bookstore last night, 14 June, to promote the launch of his new book.

The Park’s and Recreation star’s first literary offering, Modern Romance, was penned with the help of sociologist Eric Klinenberg. The book provides an empirical insight into love and romance in the 21st century, and how technology is changing the dating scene.

Ansari has been attending a string of small launches ahead of the book’s release date, June 16, before embarking on a larger book tour.

Ansari’s girlfriend, Courtney McBroom was there to show her support, as well as several celebrity guests. These included producer and director Spike Jonze, comedian Todd Barry, Broad City writers Paul W. Downs and Lucia Aniello and Now This News’ Sarah Frank.
