Why Not? Fifteen Reasons to Live
Shortly after completing his sixth novel, Ray Robertson suffered from a depression of suicidal intensity. Soon after recovering, he felt compelled to try and answer two of the biggest questions we can ask. What makes humans happy? And what makes a life worth living?
Robertson is a rock & roll Montaigne, running his hands over the whole of life: these essays remind us that much of what we have to live for requires effort and perseverance, and that we wouldn't want it any other way. Unashamedly working class and unabashedly literary, Why Not? is a rocking, rolling anti-Sisyphean odyssey.
