A charming parable about modern life that has touched the hearts of more than two million readers worldwide. Following on the success of The Elegance of the Hedgehog, and already a worldwide sensation, Hector and the Search for Happinessfinally comes to America, where readers will delight in its uplifting humor. Hector is a young psychiatrist in Paris who does not understand why his patients in this most beautiful of cities are unhappy. So he decides to take a trip around the world--from Paris to China to Africa to the United States--and to keep a list of observations about the people he meets, hoping to find the secret to happiness. Combining the winsome appeal of The Little Princewith the inspiring philosophy of The Alchemist, Hector's journey around the world and into the human soul is entertaining, empowering, and smile inducing--as winning in its optimism as it is wise in its simplicity.
Francois Lelord is a psychiatrist who has worked in Paris, Hanoi, and Ho Chi Minh City, and at UCLA. Hector and the Search for Happiness is his first novel, and the first in a series that includes Hector and the Search for Love and Hector and the Meaning of Time.
