Book Discussion | Secrets of Happiness: Author Talks About her Novel (virtual)


National Book Critics Circle Award-winning author Joan Silber presents her latest novel, Secrets of Happiness. Ethan, a young lawyer in New York, learns that his father has long kept a second family—a Thai wife and two kids living in Queens. In the aftermath of this revelation, Ethan’s mother spends a year working abroad, returning much changed, as events introduce her to the other wife. Across town, Ethan’s half-brothers are caught in their own complicated journeys, while the bargains their mother has struck about love and money continue to shape their lives. As Ethan finds himself caught in a love triangle of his own, the interwoven fates of these two households elegantly unfurl to encompass a woman rallying to help an ill brother with an unreliable lover and a filmmaker with a girlhood spent in Nepal. Evoking a generous and humane spirit, and a story that ranges over three continents, Secrets of Happiness elucidates the ways people marshal the resources at hand to forge their own forms of joy. Margot Livesey, acclaimed author of nine novels, most recently The Boy in the Field, joins Silber in conversation.
