Happiness interview: Hilary Reyl.
The brilliant (and gorgeous, not that it matters) Hilary Reyl has been a friend of mine since college, and I'm thrilled that her fabulous debut novel, Lessons in French, has just hit the shelves.
It's a coming-of-age story, and all such stories touch deeply on happiness. It draws somewhat on Hilary's own adventures in France - and from her love of all things French (for instance, her husband is French).
I wanted to ask Hilary some questions that focus directly on happiness.
Gretchen: What's a simple activity that consistently makes you happier?
Hilary: Reading. Every time I give myself over to a book, I wonder why I don't do it more.
