Can a compelling novel positively and radically change the way we think about living?

Matt Haig--author of the bestselling memoir Reasons to Stay Alive; the novel and upcoming major motion picture A Boy Called Christmas; and, most recently, The Midnight Library, a New York Times bestseller, winner of the Good Reads Choice Award for Fiction, and a Good Morning America Book Club pick--shares his philosophy on the futility of regret with Julie and Eve. They talk about radical optimism and self-acceptance; reframing depression as an experience and not a permanent reality; and finding meaning in being thankful for everyday miracles (like puppies and Wilson Phillips songs!).
