Happy Eva After is a seriously witty novel about a bloke, his wife and an alluring woman with a mysterious past.

As a teacher at the Fawlty Towers of London language colleges, Sebastian Pink is accustomed to confusion caused by the complexities of the English language.

Married to Sarah, a career woman who has long been a total workaholic but is now desperate for a baby, Sebastian feels ambivalent about becoming a parent. Sarah has effectively been absent from his life for so long that they've grown apart and these days his social life has come to revolve around his work; walking his dog, Claude; and his obsessive daily completion of the cryptic crossword.

When an alluring Czech student called Eva becomes one of Sebastian's students - and inadvertently provides him with the last solution in his morning crossword - he finds himself drawn into a sordid suburban tangle based mainly on his own misinterpretations and feverish imagination.

Happy Eva After is a seriously funny comedy about a bloke, his wife, his dog, an alluring young woman with a mysterious past, and the nuances of the English language.

    Comments about Happy Eva After:

    Happy Eva After has the sharp wit and emotional depth of a Richard Curtis film. Harrison doesn't sacrifice the language or reduce the characters to two-dimensions for the sake of 'romance' or 'comedy', for which I applaud him. I highly recommend this novel to anyone who works with or is passionate about the English language and who, like myself, is a fan of British humour and comedy. I hope many readers enjoy reading this debut novel as much as I have.
