About the Book

The Happiest People in the World

The absurdity and distortion of reality that made Brock Clarke’s previous two novels, the bestselling AN ARSONIST’S GUIDE TO WRITERS’ HOMES IN NEW ENGLAND, and EXLEY --- which was picked by Kirkus Reviews as one of the best books of the year --- so outrageously funny and yet so moving at the same time are on full display in his new novel, THE HAPPIEST PEOPLE IN THE WORLD.

Adapting the format of the political thriller and subverting it to tell his story of innocence corrupted, Clarke has delivered a biting and controversial satire on the American obsession with security and the conspiracies that threaten it, along with a challenging reassessment of individual freedoms inherent in our “pursuit of happiness”…at all costs.
