ABOUT THE BOOK: This is Happiness is the most enchanting novel you’ll read this year, from the acclaimed author of Man Booker-longlisted History of the Rain. It’s a novel that harks back to a simpler time, painting a tender portrait of a community, with all its idiosyncracies, failures and triumphs. Luminous and lyrical, it is about the power of stories: their invisible currents that run through all we do, writing and rewriting us, and the transforming light that they throw onto our world.

We love it when reading groups get exclusive free proofs from our publisher partners. We love it when readers pick up a pre-loved book from a second-hand bookshop for a song. And we also love it when you buy yourself or someone else a brand new book from a high street bookshop. We also know that buying online is quick and convenient...
