Are You Happy Now

Are You Happy Now

The newest novel from the author of The Last. For fans of Emily John St. Mandel, Sally Rooney and Patricia Lockwood



It all began at a wedding. A smile across the room. A moment of lust. A separation long overdue. Then a woman sat down . . . and never stood up again.

Suddenly hundreds, then thousands of people are sitting down. Is it a sickness - or are they simply giving up?

In the search for love, or happiness, or anything at all, is living a choice? Or is it just something that happens to us?
