Happy Ending

Original title: Feliz final

This novel reconstructs a great love story beginning with its end, the story of a couple who, like so many others, fell in love, lived a dream, had children and fought against everything - against themselves and against the elements, uncertainty, precariousness, jealousy -, they struggled not to give up, and fell several times. When love ends, the question arises: where did it all go wrong, how did we end up like this?

A relentless autopsy of the desires, expectations and mistakes of a loving relationship, in which deeply rooted resentments, lies and misunderstandings emerge, but also many happy moments.

In this novel, Isaac Rosa tackles a universal theme, love, from the many conditioning factors that make it difficult today: precariousness and uncertainty, vital dissatisfaction, the interferences of desire, the imagery of love in fiction... For indeed, it’s possible that love, as it’s been describe to us, is a luxury we can’t always afford.

With an absolutely original and forceful narrative voice, Isaac Rosa has earned the respect of critics and the public: the Fundación José Manuel Lara Prize; the Rómulo Gallegos Prize; the Ojo Crítico de Narrativa Prize; the Andalusia Critics’ Prize.
