Happy All the Time is a modern classic first published in 1978.
Guido is not in the habit of falling in love with women he sees in museums, until he meets Holly. Precise about everything, she knows what she likes: pressed sheets, oranges, tea on a tray – and now, Guido. Meanwhile Vincent, Guido’s eternally cheerful best friend, falls for his misanthropic new colleague, Misty. She seems as uninterested in love as she is in Vincent. Through courtship, arguments, wedding plans and other perils, the couples find a way to be happy (almost) all the time.
