All the Happiness You Deserve
Piafsky's captivating, Tarot-inspired debut depicts the dramatic arc of an Everyman's life from childhood to old age.
"Brilliant . . . Michael Piafsky is a word wizard . . . with prose so dramatic and suspenseful that the book becomes impossible to put down." ―Foreword Reviews
This dazzling 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 speak to the disconnectedness of society and the perplexing isolation of the human condition.
