The Life Impossible

Matt Haig

The remarkable new novel from the author of the multimillion-selling international sensation The Midnight Library

'What looks like magic is simply a part of life we don’t understand yet . . .'

When retired Maths teacher Grace Winters is left a run-down house on a Mediterranean island by a long-lost friend, curiosity gets the better of her. She arrives in Ibiza with a one-way ticket, no guidebook and no plan.

Among the rugged hills and golden beaches Grace searches for answers about her friend’s life, and how it ended. What she uncovers is stranger than she could have dreamed. But to dive into this impossible truth, Grace must first come to terms with her past.

Filled with wonder and wild adventure, this is a story of hope and the lifechanging power of a new beginning.

Matt Haig writes both fiction and non-fiction. This includes the novels The Humans, How to Stop Time and The Midnight Library, which has been a number one Sunday Times bestseller and a number one New York Times bestseller. He has also written a number of children’s books including A Boy Called Christmas, which became a major feature film, and most recently the non-fiction book for adults, The Comfort Book.
