Synopsis: HECTOR AND THE SEARCH FOR HAPPINESS

Can we learn how to be happy? Hector is a successful young psychiatrist. He's very good at treating patients in real need of his help. But many people he sees have no health problems: they're just deeply dissatisfied with their lives. Hector can't do much for them, and it's beginning to depress him. So when a patient tells him he looks in need of a holiday, Hector decides to set off round the world to find out what makes people everywhere happy (and sad), and whether there is such a thing as the secret of true happiness.

LELORD, FRANCOIS

about author

He has written several psychological monographs together with Christoph André. His first novel, Le voyage d'Hector ou la recherche du bonheur ("Hector's Voyage or the Search for Happiness"), was very successful in France as well as other countries such as Germany. It is a book on psychology written for ordinary readers; it tells the story of Hector, a psychiatrist, who travels around the world in search of what it is that makes people happy. The book is written in a simple, humorous style, and gives psychological advice and thought-provoking impulses without even touching dry theory.

Lelord continues to publish novels dealing with similar topics which are written in a similar manner. Following its European success, Penguin Group (USA) acquired the rights to publish Lelord's debut novel in the United States of America. "Hector and the Search for Happiness" was released on 31 August 2010. This was followed by "Hector and the Secrets of Love" on 1 January 2011 and "Hector and the Search for Lost Time" on 31 July 2012. A film adaptation of "Hector and the Search for Happiness" starring Simon Pegg as the title character was released in 2014.
