SUMMARY

A simple woman looks back on her harsh life with extraordinary insight and unexpected joy At the opening of "My Happy Life, the unnamed narrator of this bittersweet fictional memoir has been abandoned in a locked room of a defunct hospital for the mentally ill. She hasn't seen the nice man who brings her food in days; she's eaten the soap and the toothpaste; she tried to eat the plaster on her walls, a dietary adventure that ended none too well. And yet, curiously, the narrator is happy. Despite a lifetime of neglect, physical abuse, and loss, she's incapable of perceiving slight or injury. She has infinite faith in the goodwill of others, loves even her enemies, and finds grace and communion in places most people wouldn't dare to look. By stepping outside her meager circumstances, she's able to live each moment as though it were her last-with gratitude, longing, and delight. Readers will be unable to put down Lydia Millet's impressive, original foray into serious literary fiction.Millet, Lydia is the author of 'My Happy Life A Novel', published 2002 under ISBN 9780805068467 and ISBN 0805068465.
