The Secret of Happiness:
And other essays from 
The Huffington Post





The essays in The Secret of Happiness range from life as an orphan to life as a model; from psychotherapy to bootlegging and the Great Depression and murders and loss. Originally published in the Huffington Post, the collection reflects Babette's wisdom acquired from her long and unique life that began with her father's and uncle's murder by the Mafia. Written with economy and lucidity, this slim jewel of a book reveals intimate slices of the author's life.


Ninety-four-year-old novelist, Babette Hughes has lived a full life, and she has paid close attention along the way. Her wisdom and wit have allowed her to not only survive into her nineties but to thrive. She has penned and published a memoir and four novels and has become a regular contributor to the Huffington Post. This collection of her best essays on life, love and loss is a treasure. It is entertaining and instructive, the perfect gift to give to friends and family who may be curious about how to live a creative and remarkable life, enjoy love, overcome adversity, and finish well.
