Coming 29 August 2024: The Life Impossible by Matt Haig, bestselling author of The Midnight Library

The Life Impossible by Matt Haig will be out in August 2024 from Jonathan Ball Publishers!

The Life Impossible is a story of wild adventure, deep transformation and gloriously heart-warming characters. It shows how a new outlook can burst into life at any moment and change everything.

Matt Haig says:

‘I’ve never written a book that I feel more proud of or more excited about than The Life Impossible. It’s a book I didn’t plan to write. I stepped away from writing three years ago. But then this idea came, like a barnacle to a boat and I just had to write it. It’s an adventure story, a mystery story. a story about ecology. It’s about the world, about grief, love, the ocean, hope, redemption – all the big life and death things. I’ve poured everything into it and I’m so excited for you to read it this time next year.’

Francis Bickmore, Canongate’s Publisher at Large, says:

‘The Life Impossible is a gift to readers and a future Matt Haig classic in the making. It is a wonderful story with a thunderously beating heart, all driven by a charming – and utterly disarming – hero. It’s a reminder that we are never too old to believe in the impossible. To the nine million readers of The Midnight Library so far, I say, with this new novel, Matt Haig has you covered!’
