About the Author: François Lelord

François Lelord, born 22 June 1953 in Paris is a French psychiatrist and author. He studied medicine and psychology. After getting his doctoral degree in 1985, he was a post-doctorate researcher with Robert Liberman at the University of California (UCLA), Los Angeles. He then worked as an attending physician at Hôpital Necker (which is affiliated with Descartes University) in Paris for two years.
In 1989 he opened up his own practice which he closed down in 1996 to work as an advisor on stress and job satisfaction for several companies. Having co-written various self-help books, he was commissioned to produce another but found himself instead writing a novel, Hector and the Search for Happiness, the first in a series of adventures featuring a psychiatrist protagonist. In 2004, Lelord went to work for an NGO in Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City. He now lives in Thailand with his wife and son. The film of Hector and the Search for Happiness is released in UK cinemas in August 2014, starring Simon Pegg and Rosamund Pike.

Tal como hiciera en sus viajes anteriores, donde surcó el mundo en busca de las claves de la felicidad y del amor, Hector abandona de nuevo su consulta parisina para conquistar la cima más difícil: el arte de envejecer. Día tras día, el joven psiquiatra francés ha escuchado de boca de sus pacientes los lamentos, frustraciones y melancolía que genera la naturaleza huidiza del tiempo, así que la misteriosa desaparición de un viejo monje tibetano que conoció en China le brinda la ocasión perfecta de partir. Hector intuye que el anciano, con su erudición y experiencia, es la única persona que tiene las respuestas a sus preguntas, y en su esfuerzo por encontrarlo conocerá una serie de personajes que le darán una perspectiva distinta de las cosas, ayudándole a contemplar con nuevos ojos el significado del tiempo en nuestras vidas y en el universo.
