One Hundred Days of Happiness (English Edition) Formato Kindle
'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 . . .
“Why we’re reading: We could all use a reminder to enjoy every moment.” —Esquire.com
“Depressing? No. Uplifting? Yes. Funny? Often. Although it’s a countdown to death, this story is a celebration of life. Grab a doughnut and treat yourself to a good read.” —Hudson Valley News
“I loved the style of writing in this impressive book. Author Fausto Brizzi delivers and enjoyable tale which should be sad and depressing. I laughed throughout this tale. It is a wonderful novel that I hope everyone gets the opportunity to read. I loved it.” —Open Book Society
“100 Days of Happiness is a celebration of everyday life masquerading as a countdown to death. To read it is to realize that the child within us is still alive and well, ready to laugh, play, love unguardedly, and eat hot doughnuts.”—Martha Woodroof, author of Small Blessings --Questo testo si riferisce a un'edizione alternativa kindle_edition.
Dalla seconda/terza di copertina
Lucio Battistini knows the three most important days of his life:
the day he was conceived,
the day his wife agreed to marry him,
and the day he died.
But it is on the day he discovers he only has three months left to live that Lucio realizes it's time to turn his life around. Because so far he hasn't been getting it right. In fact he's been thrown out by his wife and is sleeping in the stock room of his father-in-law's bakery. From now on things have to change, and every moment counts.
This is Lucio's story of the last one hundred days of his life. Vowing to also make them the happiest, he sets out with his family on a journey across Italy, determined to win back his wife, to create the best possible memories for his children and ultimately to become the man he was always meant to be.
Outrageous and hilarious, One Hundred Days of Happiness is a novel about life and love that reminds us all about what matters most.

I have read a lot of books about death and dying, in my pursuit of unravelling and understanding the death of my partner in 2008. I’ve done a lot of memoirs, in my time. One of the best was Joan Didion’s ‘The Magical Year of Thinking.’ Joan’s husband, John Gregory Dunne, died of a heart attack at the dinner table after they returned from visiting their daughter, who was in hospital. Joan tells the story about what happened next, after the fatal, tragic cardiac event that stole her beloved friend away from life so unexpectedly, so suddenly and so ordinarily.
I donut think that I wanted to read a memoir about the black crab, cancer, when Signor Brizzi landed on my browser like a wasp on a white wine spritzer at a birthday picnic. Reviews of the novel were ambiguous, teasing. I thought that I would be running with scissors and exploring wallflower perks when I started to read this novel. I thought that Brizzi might be a little bit Wes Anderson, a little bit kooky, a little bit kitsch. When it had sunk in that I was reading a dying man’s memoir I did feel a little bit like I had been tricked, punked.
Like Dave Eggers, ‘A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius’ the painfully acute comedy of tragedy, breaks through the song and verse of the story like magic light beams. ‘One Hundred Days of Happiness’ is an epic portrayal of a man consumed by the ego of his own mortality. It’s also a book about one man’s devastating love affair with hot, luscious, lip-smacking sugary treats. The donut.
Brizzi’s wife’s silence throughout the ordeal of her husband’s failure at marriage and life, touches so many familiar feelings and experiences of the human condition. It’s a brilliant read, beautifully naive and profound in all of the right places. The selfishness of man, the vulnerabilities, the perfect flaws.
Just make sure that you have tissues and donuts to hand.
Some parts of this story were quite difficult to comprehend. For example, when the main character finds out that what he has been eating was not healthy and he is totally taken aback by that, I wanted to throw the book away. How can a thirty something man not know that fried food, sugar, flour etc are not good for health? Fried doughnuts? He needs to google these to confirm what the doctor says?
I think the narrator was not necessarily a likeable character. He was truly an average man, not very interesting or charming. This could be what makes this story so touching though.
I have read every page, hoping for the “countdown” of chapters to be slower and slower’ so that I could savour every word.
