Meanwhile, Tony Buford, a “professor of happiness studies” at a local college, gently blackmails him into publishing his fantastically mundane poetry.
Reminiscent of Richard Russo at his wittiest, Are You Happy Now? is a comic novel about the hard work of understanding what it is you want.

Whiny is as whiny does; but read if you've thought
of writing a novel .The story is clever though I think it gets a little lost in the ~second half. I don't know if it portrays the publishing world accurately; if so, not such a great place to work. Chicago is shown as a generally unpleasant place and John Lincoln has only occasional episodes of happiness there. I did NOT laugh out loud at anything.
Jeff Cummings was probably an appropriate choice for narrator channeling the whininess and near-swooning of John Lincoln but I can't say it was all that pleasant a listen.
