Matt Haig

Number-one best-selling author Matt Haig has always been able to tell a compelling story, with his 2015 memoir Reasons to Stay Alive charting his battles with depression and anxiety and bringing discussions of mental health into the mainstream.

His new novel, The Midnight Library, introduces us to Nora Seed, whose life brims full of misery and regret. \

When Nora is given the opportunity to change everything, the author poses an age-old question – what is the best way to live? Alex Clark talks to Matt about his life-affirming new novel.
