City Books Present: Matt Haig – Reasons To Stay Alive
‘Essential to our collective well-being’ ~ Jo Brand
‘I think it is a small masterpiece – it might even save lives’ ~ Joanna Lumley
Aged 24, Matt Haig’s world caved in. He could see no way to go on living. This is the true story of how he came through crisis, triumphed over an illness that almost destroyed him, and learned to live again.
Reasons To Stay Alive is a moving, funny, and joyous exploration of how to live better, love better and feel more alive. It is more than a memoir. It is a book about making the most of your time on earth.
Matt Haig is the author of five novels, including the bestselling The Last Family In England, which has been optioned by Brad Pitt’s production company, The Radleys, which was selected for Channel 4’s TV Book Club and was voted the winner of the series in 2011 and The Humans, a World Book Night 2014 title. His works have been translated into over twenty languages, and he has also written award-winning books for children.
This special evening will feature a book reading, Q&A session, and book signing, with first edition copies available at discount.
