Jill Stark was living the dream: a coveted job, dating a sports star, and her first book a bestseller. She’d found her fairytale ending. Then it all fell apart. In Happy Never After, Jill examines why the happiness fairytale is driving us mad – and reveals how she flipped the script.

Jill Stark bagai hidup dalam mimpi: pekerjaan yang didambakan, menjalin hubungan asmara dengan seorang bintang olahraga, dan buku pertamanya menjadi buku terlaris. Ia menemukan akhir kisahnya. Kemudian semuanya hancur berantakan. Dalam Happy Never After, Jill mencari tahu mengapa kisah tentang kebahagiaan justru membuat kita marah – dan mengungkapkan bagaimana ia menuliskan skripnya.
