Front cover of Almost HappyA panther hunting for love in New York City, a dancing Kali tempting an innocent soul in an Indian nightclub, a dead dove under the roof and two lovers lost between the worlds. In Almost Happy, the characters find themselves drawn, tempted and tested to find their own happiness. The love they are searching for may bring endless joy and inner peace or hurt and almost destroy them. For most people, love means a lot more than a happy ending to their story. It is a joyful, troublesome and sometimes magical intensity that we call love. It uplifts us from our puny existence, and ultimately makes us who we are. Almost Happy is a celebration of that intensity – and it transpires through every word in this book.
