“A personal favourite and the best reminder during the summer season… or any season, as a matter of fact.” –Meghan Markle, for British Vogue on "A Note from the Beach" from Notes On A Nervous Planet

"A primer for how to live in the present moment, this book will find grateful readers everywhere." —Nigella Lawson, author of How to Be a Domestic Goddess and Nigella Bites

"Take Notes on a Nervous Planet twice daily, with or without food. Crammed with wisdom, insight, love and wit." —Stephen Fry

“Likable and thought-provoking . . . A wonderfully perceptive chronicle of life in the always-on social media age.” —The Guardian

"Witty, honest, and engaging. Haig shows great skill in describing the 'invisible cyclone' of depression. . . A worthy successor to Reasons to Stay Alive." —The Sunday Times

Notes on a Nervous Planet contains lists, imagined conversations, essays, and personal stories that critique the damage that worry—about the environment, politics, the news, and everything else that demands our attention on a daily basis—wreaks on our ability to live a full life. Haig artfully, powerfully counters these challenges with battle-tested advice from his own hard-won experience.” —Booklist

/아마존 북 리뷰/

"Very original spin on the myth...The bite-size chapters guide the reader from one viewpoint to another....Haig's depiction of teen politics is spot on....insightful, frightening and uplifting....Uncle Will [is] a splendidly evil yet believable character...Haig pays just about enough respect to the conventions of the genre that the average vampire fan should find lots to enjoy, but it's the blackly comic dissection of the family that makes this book stand out." —The Guardian

“This witty vampire novel from British author Haig provides what jaded fans of the Twilight series need, not True Blood exactly, but some fresh blood in the form of a true blue family.” --Publishers Weekly (starred review)

"Dark humor pervades Haig's entertaining vampire family soap opera...a refreshing take on an oversaturated genre." —Library Journal

“Terrific, droll, and touching.”
Parade

The Radleys is effortlessly sleek and witty.”
Entertainment Weekly

“Haig’s contribution is freshly weird and ultimately thirst-quenching for fans of the genre.”
USA Today

“As befits a vampire story, the wit tends to be sharp….Haig does justice to the effect of…betrayal on the souls of his characters—the startling pleasure and the lasting woe—proving himself a novelist of considerable seriousness and talent.” —The New York Times Book Review

“Matt Haig’s novel is not only head and shoulders above Twilight and all those other wimpy vampire romances, but, as an explorer of contemporary mores, Haig is more enjoyable company than writers with more ‘literary’ pedigrees.” —Newsday
