Are you happy now

£9.99

At a New York City wedding, in early summer, four people are trying to get their lives started. Yun has everything he ever wanted, but somehow it’s never enough. Emory is finally making her mark, but feels the shame more than the success. Andrew just wants to be honest, but has lied to himself his whole life. Fin can’t resist falling in love, but can’t help wrecking it all either. That night they see something none of them can explain. Someone sits down, and simply gives up. Soon it’s happening all around them. Is it an illness, or a decision? How can anyone really be happy when the only choice is to feel everything – or nothing at all?

Description

‘An eerie, fascinating, nihilistic triumph’ Heather Darwent

—–

A New York City wedding. Two great love stories. The beginning of a breaking world.

Yun and Emory fall into an intense romance, and then don’t let go.
Andrew is clinging to his marriage, but knows he’s lying to himself.
Fin can’t resist ruining things, until he meets the right person.

But on that night, the world shifts in an impossible way. One of the wedding guests suddenly sits down and never gets back up. Soon people are doing it all across the world. Is it a choice – or an illness?

Can anyone be happy in a world where the only choice is to feel everything – or nothing at all?

An intensely compulsive novel for anyone who has ever felt hopeful and helpless in one breath, ARE YOU HAPPY NOW is about how you keep living when the world is on fire.
