“The Prime Mover took a handful of stars and flung them into the emptiness and there was light and space. The artist looked at the empty canvas and began to sketch, then filled the paper with colourful images. We took an empty piece of arid land in Africa and farmed it.”    Jay Day

 

Join our 20th Century settlers, naïve but indefatigable, as they struggle to turn a profit in South-Africa’s harsh highveld.

 

Happiness is egg-shaped is an adventure, seen through the eyes of a Polish immigrant.

In Happiness is egg-shaped Rambeau, the ram, was unspeakably lazy; he had nothing on his mind but food.  Kaitek, the ostrich, was as mean as hell; he had nothing on his mind but sex.  Bianca and Kaizimierz had nothing on their minds but making ends meet.

 

Happiness is egg-shaped is a refreshing book filled with sketches from the heart.

 

“What’s the point of the book?” asked Manuela, the proofreader.

“Why must there be a point?” Jay asked. “How did you feel when you read it?”

“It cheered me up,” she smiled.

“So what’s better?” Jay Asked. “To leave an empty page, or fill it with stories? To have an empty life, or to do something? Does it have to be about cruelty, hate and destruction to be worth recording?”

 

Happiness is egg-shaped was written for the reader who wants to became a part of a ordinary person’s dream… the dream to be part of the greater good.
