Summary
""Can't Kim be happy?" This is the question asked of Kim Korson--a female Woody Allen--at her first (and last) shrink appointment, and her chief dilemma in this fresh-voiced, hilarious take on what it means to be a malcontent. "Go find your happy place!" Kim Korson's befuddled husband exclaims one day, as his disgruntled wife is listing about the house (as malcontents are wont to do.) It sounds simple enough--only Kim can't. Because she doesn't have one. I Don't Have a Happy Place is an exploration of Kim's oftentimes irrational, at times self-induced, and nearly perpetual state of unhappiness, told through a series of humorous, autobiographical essays. Beginning with her childhood in the 1970s and extending through first jobs, first loves, marriage, and motherhood, Kim tries to explain why she's happiest at her most unhappy--and why she's completely fine with that. But, determined to change her ways for her children if nothing else, Kim moves her family from Brooklyn to southern Vermont to see if she can find happy for the first time in her life. Rife with evocative and nostalgic observations, unapologetic realism, and razor-sharp wit, I Don't Have a Happy Place is sure to make you laugh, nod your head compulsively in agreement, and ultimately feel empowered to ask: "Happy? Who's happy?!""--
