The Happiest Man on Earth

The Happiest Man on Earth

WINNER OF THE ABIA BIOGRAPHY OF THE YEAR 2021 Life can be beautiful if you make it beautiful. It is up to you. Eddie Jaku always considered himself a German first, a Jew second. He was proud of his country. But all of that changed in November 1938, when he was beaten, arrested and taken to a concentration camp. Over the next seven years, Eddie faced unimaginable horrors every day, first in Buchenwald, then in Auschwitz, then on a Nazi death march. He lost family, friends, his country. Because he survived, Eddie made the vow to smile every day. He pays tribute to those who were lost by telling his story, sharing his wisdom and living his best possible life. He now believes he is the 'happiest man on earth'. Published as Eddie turns 100, this is a powerful, heartbreaking and ultimately hopeful memoir of how happiness can be found even in the darkest of times.

Daily Telegraph 'A reminder of the power of love, kindness and hope . . . A life-affirming story, beautifully told.' Sydney Morning Herald 'Jaku's memoir can be our private celebration of evil that was ultimately vanquished.' Country Style 'His tale is compelling and particularly pertinent as we struggle to make sense of challenging times.' Weekend Post 'He acknowledges suffering but resists being defined by it, adhering instead to his philosophy of choosing a radical form of humanity, a resistance both potent and infectious.' Australian Book Review 'What an amazing, beautiful human' Magda Szubanski 'A beautiful soul' Lisa Wilkinson 'Eddie is a human diamond, and his story of survival, hope and the importance of kindness is what the world needs now.'

American Anxieties is a brilliant, unorthodox portrait of the 1930s. Filler does what others have tried, but few have succeeded in accomplishing: he captures the continuity between the 1930s and the 1990s. He does this less by personal accounts or statistical comparisons, than by the emphasis upon a common core
