Synopsis

'Charming, touching, surprising and ultimately uplifting. Funny, moving . . . I defy anyone to finish this story without tears in their eyes' Graeme Simsion, author of The Rosie Project

'Hilarious but heart-wrenching' Daily Mail

What would you do if you only had 100 days left to live?
Lucio Battistini has a list:
To win back his wife - the love of his life
To become a dad his kids will always remember
To help his father-in-law find love
To let his friends know how much they mean to him
And most of all he must make every moment count.

So far, he hasn't been getting it right. And if Lucio is going to become the man he was always meant to be, he's got a lot of work to do . . .

Brilliant . . . thought-provoking and poignant
Stylist
The best stories about death are the ones that are full of life . . . One Hundred Days of Happiness is a joyous book that left me crying like a baby for a good 15 minutes at the end. It's rare to find a story where male friendship is at the core, particularly friendships that are so open and full of emotion.
