Reasons to Stay Alive

By Matt Haig

Recommended by: Jaffé & Neale Bookshop and Café

Bookshop name Jaffé & Neale Bookshop and Café
recommendation After the success of The Humans, Matt Haig’s new book is one of a slightly more serious and current subject matter than that of an alien disguised as a Cambridge University Mathematics lecturer. Writing with the same ease, style and humour however Haig’s Reasons To Stay Alive is a profound account of one man’s struggle with depression. His ability to write with such clarity about the mental illness that is far from simple is astounding and a book that you will not be able to put down. It is honest, original and all together life changing for depression survivors, sufferers and those merely looking from the outside in.
