'I like the smell of pines and the aroma of freshly washed laundry. I like the rattle of hail on windowpanes and the texture of volcanic rock. I like the light in the sky when the sun has gone down.'

Already an international bestseller, The Temptation to Be Happy is a coming-of-age story like no other.
