Through equal parts humor and empathy, Every Brilliant Thing tells the story of a young man who has lived in the shadow of mental illness. In an attempt to raise his mother’s spirits, he starts a list of everything that’s brilliant about the world—all of the reasons to want to live. As he grows up and has his own experiences with love, loss, and depression, the list evolves to serve as a lifelong reminder that joy can be found even in seemingly insignificant moments.
