The Happy Reader #11


THE HAPPY READER is a unique magazine about reading for anyone who wishes to stay inspired, informed and entertained. Each issue is split into two halves. The first half is an in-depth interview with a book fanatic and the second half gets under the skin of one classic work of literature.

Our bookish magazine for summer 2018 presents a landmark interview with Olly Alexander, lead vocalist with British pop group YEARS & YEARS and a ravenous consumer of all kinds of literature. Over long and leisurely conversations with PAUL FLYNN he opens up about being young, gay and famous, explains a key literary reference in a new song, and namechecks, among others, James Baldwin, Andrew Holleran and Flannery O’Connor.

Part two of Issue 11 strives to unlock the meaning of THE BLACK TULIP, an unputdownable novel set in the Dutch Golden Age. Dumas’ book has contributors asking questions like, ‘why do people join angry mobs?’, ‘why is my neighbour so friendly to my boyfriend?’, ‘why are there fleas on my bulb?’ and ‘why is China so excited about racing pigeons?’ With DEBORAH LEVY, RICHARD BENSON, CHARLIE CONNELLY and NEAL FOX.
