Product description

Review

"Extraordinary...Stark address[es] this vexed question of what effect our over-stimulated, almost constantly wired brains are having on our sense of well-being."

--The Sydney Morning Herald

"By looking back on her childhood, interviewing experts and amassing anecdotal data, Stark expertly links her lifelong struggle with anxiety with a collective social malaise that is exacerbated by our constant connectivity, underfunded mental healthcare systems and the pervasive 'happiness myth'...The book's resounding takeaway that there are multiple 'happy-in-betweens' instead of one 'happy-ever-after' is an uplifting and liberating one."

--Books+Publishing

"Her personal experience with anxiety gives readers an insight into why we should hit the brakes on our quest for happiness."

--Mercury

"A moving, insightful analysis of our collective pain and how we can heal."

--Johann Hari, author of Lost Connections

"Funny, wise, poignant and compelling, Happy Never After is a brilliant intersection between searing personal experience and the wisdom of the elders: nothing brings us closer to despair than the relentless pursuit of our own happiness."

--Hugh MacKay, author of The Good Life

"Faced with the crippling paralysis that comes with anxiety and depression, Jill Stark doesn't completely crumple. Instead, she does what a good journalist does: looks it directly in the face in order to explain, investigate, and reveal. Anyone who reads this book who lives with anxiety will be a beneficiary of its courage and clarity."

--Benjamin Law, author of Gaysia and The Family Law

"With the same keen eye evident in her previous book, Happy Never After is full of far-reaching and astoundingly thorough research...this is a must-read for anyone who has either struggled with mental health themselves or knows someone who has--and according to Stark, that's most of us."

--Readings

"This is a book we need. Highly, highly recommended. Puts a deft finger on many things that I guarantee have been quietly troubling you for a while. A book for our times."

--Susan Carland, author of Fighting Hislam: Women, Faith and Sexism

"Exploratory and explanatory."--Miriam Cosic "The Saturday Age "

Book Description

Jill Stark was living the dream. She had a coveted job as a senior journalist, she was dating a sports star, and her first book had just become a bestseller. After years of chasing the fairytale ending, she'd finally found it. And then it all fell apart.
