Named an Indie Next pick and recommended by, Bustle, ELLE, Electric Literature, and more, Like Happiness tells the story of a young woman’s destructive relationship with a legendary writer. Join author Ursula Villarreal-Moura on book tour as she discusses the complexities of gender, power, and fame in her searing debut novel.

"Expertly written with striking intimacy and heartbreaking clarity, Like Happiness accomplishes a profound emotional electrocution that will leave you floating lighter for days."

—Xochitl Gonzalez, author of Olga Dies Dreaming and Anita de Monte Laughs Last

"Like Happiness is a deft and touching coming of age story that resists easy answers to very thorny questions—about sexual consent and power, about fame and persona, about making and loving art."

—Rumaan Alam, bestselling author of Leave the World Behind and finalist for the National Book Award
