Michael Piafsky’s debut novel follows its midwestern narrator from childhood to old age as he examines the touchpoints and transitions that define a life. Scotty’s languorous journey takes him through the pivotal experiences common to so many American men: a middle-class childhood, college, marriage, fatherhood, cross-country moves, business success and failure, and aging. Piafsky frames his story with Tarot images that provide a subtly cutting commentary on the disconnectedness of society and the perplexing isolation of the human condition. Engaging and thought-provoking, All the Happiness You Deserve is a novel set to make its mark on the American literary landscape.
