Award-winning author of Why Not? Fifteen Reasons To Live Ray Robertson asks the questions, What makes humans Happy? and What makes life worth living? on the Conversation Crossroad radio program.
Shortly after completing his sixth novel, Ray Robertson suffered a depression of suicidal intensity. Soon after recovering, he felt compelled to try and answer two of the biggest questions we can ask:
What makes humans Happy?
What makes life worth living?
Robertson is a rock & roll Montaigne, running his hands over the whole of life. These essays remind us that much of what we have to live for requires effort and perseverance. We wouldn’t want it any other way. Unashamedly working-class and unabashedly literary, Why Not< is a rolling, rollicking, anti-Sisypehean odyssey.
Ray Robertson is the author of the novels Home Movies, Heroes, Moody Food, Gently Down the Stream, What Happened Later, and David, as well as a collection of non-fiction, Mental Hygiene: Essays on Writers and Writing. He is a contributing book reviewer to the Globe and Mail.
