Life, Only Better

Anna Gavalda

PAPERBACK

November 24, 2015

Mathilde is twenty-four. She has abandoned her studies in art history in lieu of a menial job and lives in a house she shares with twin sisters. One day she forgets her bag in a café and a week later an unknown man returns it to her. Following this encounter, Mathilde decides to throw caution to the wind and change her life entirely.
 
Yann is twenty-six, a university graduate, unemployed. There may be better days ahead. Maybe. While waiting for them to come, he works as a sales assistant in a home appliances store. He wouldn’t say he is unhappy. But sometimes, late at night, when he is crossing a bridge over the River Seine, he imagines jumping. One day he does a favor for one of his neighbors and is asked to stay for dinner as thanks. The following morning Yann throws caution to the wind and decides to change his life entirely.
 
These two novellas by best-selling author Anna Gavalda are among her most moving and inspiring. Love in this book is a fragile emotion, easily ruined and eternally subject to the consequences of one's choices. Gavalda’s great gift is the directness with which she addresses her readers in a voice that is at once inventive, forceful, and intimate. Life, Only Better is a touching, cleverly crafted book about choices and their consequences.

Editorial Reviews

“Both stories have a sentimental streak, but Ms. Gavalda, a best-selling author in her native France, puts them across with charm.”

– New York Times

“This is an effervescent book, comprised of two equally well-rounded stories. Mathilde and Yann feel like old friends by the end of each story.”

– New York Journal of Books

“With writing this beautiful and charming, and heartbreakingly sincere, Gavalda makes the journey well worth the effort.”

– The Cedar Rapids Gazette
