Description

Everybody wants to learn the art of happiness. Somehow life always gets in the way. Walking in unexpectedly on her husband's infidelity, Penelope is forced to walk out of their marriage, abandoning Ulysses to care for their three-month old baby, Telemachus. As Penelope's career as a fashion designer, blossoms, Ulysses goes in search of answers that will make sense of being a father and a husband; hoping to find a degree of happiness in his life. When Penelope returns to Madrid, she wants to be with Telemachus again but life with Ulysses is a different matter. Can they ever find happiness? Will fate get in the way? Have they learnt the lessons of the past? Outrageously funny, moving and profound, Vallvey's award-winning novel is a glittering story of the strange powers of love, family and philosophy.
