Short Description: The Curse of Happiness is a collection of short stories that finds ordinary people struggling and sometimes failing in extraordinary circumstances.
From a woman faced with a long awaited but ultimately underwhelming miracle in “Baby Blue Joy” to a man who finds himself face to face with humanity’s most terrifying manifestation, an enraged mob, in “What is Mine is Yours.”
Yakusak stretches the limits of the normal human perception of the decisions people take in situations beyond their control. It’s an in-depth examination into the human psyche that is both intriguing and disturbing on a level that interacts with the inner reaches of our subconscious.
The Curse of Happiness weaves exciting stories of how normalcy is a luxury in reality: one we often take for granted.
