Synopses & Reviews
One of Laurie Colwin's best known novels, Happy All the Time hysterically follows the ins and outs of romantic friendship, marriage, and love. Knowing that happiness is an art form requiring energy, discipline, and talent, two couples Guido and Holly and Vincent and Misty must overcome jealousy, estrangement, and countless other perils in order to successfully find true love.
"Colwin's canny Manhattan pastorale strikes me as at least as much fun to read as Sense and Sensibility." Newsweek
