Very Good Lives : The Fringe Benefits of Failure and the Importance of Imagination Hardback

Illustrated by Joel Holland



J.K. Rowling, one of the world's most inspiring writers, shares her wisdom and advice in this artfully illustrated book. In 2008, J.K. Rowling delivered a deeply affecting commencement speech at Harvard University.

Now published for the first time in book form, Very Good Lives offers J.K.

Rowling's words of wisdom for anyone at a turning point in life, asking the profound and provocative questions: How can we embrace failure? And how can we use our imagination to better both ourselves and others? Drawing from stories of her own post-graduate years, the world-famous author addresses some of life's most important issues with acuity and emotional force. Sales of Very Good Lives will benefit Lumos, a charity organisation founded by J.K.

Rowling, which works to transform the lives of disadvantaged children, and university-wide financial aid at Harvard University.
