Matt Haig is a rising star of the literary scene,  with both his adult and children’s fiction. But Reasons to Stay Alive is the true story of how Matt Haig came through the crisis of acute depression, triumphed over it and learned to live again. A moving, funny and joyous exploration of how to live better, love better and feel more alive, this is more than a memoir. It is a book about making the most of your time on earth. “I wrote this book because the oldest cliches remain the truest. Time heals. The bottom of the valley never provides the clearest view. The tunnel does have light at the end of it, even if we haven’t been able to see it …Words, just sometimes, really can set you free.”
