Pursuit of Happiness
A striking repackage for the No.1 bestselling author of The Pursuit of Happiness and A Special Relationship
Manhattan 1945 and US Army journalist Jack Malone gatecrashes a Thanksgiving Eve party. Set amidst the dynamic post-war optimism and subsequent nightmare of the McCarthy witch-hunts, this acclaimed story of love and betrayal is a tale of divided loyalties, decisive moral choices and the random workings of destiny. Highly recommended.
