An examination of a traditionally pessimistic concept of living that will redefine what we place importance on—and leave us happier because of it.
Disillusioned with the search for meaning? If career success, a beautiful life, and a beautiful Instagram account are meant to make us feel safe and happy, why does this generation remain defined by stress, burnout, and obsessive individuality? Award-winning writer Wendy Syfret examines how meaning pervades our modern experience of work, love, religion, and wider society, and asks whether a touch of upbeat nihilism could actually lighten our loads. The Sunny Nihilist dismantles our self-care and self-centered way of living and instead asks readers to consider the alternative. Freed from the burden of meaning, we can simply enjoy our lives and build more pleasant societies for each other.
