9780857868787: The Humans

The bestselling, award-winning author of The Radleys is back with what may be his best, funniest, and most devastating dark comedy yet. When an extraterrestrial visitor arrives on Earth, his first impressions of the human species are less than positive. Taking the form of Professor Andrew Martin, a prominent mathematician at

Cambridge University, the visitor is eager to complete the gruesome task assigned him and hurry back home to the utopian world of his own planet, where everyone enjoys immortality and infinite knowledge.

He is disgusted by the way humans look, what they eat, and their capacity for murder and war, and he is equally baffled by the concepts of love and family. But as time goes on, he starts to realize there may be more to this weird species than he has been led to believe. Disguised as Martin, he drinks wine, reads poetry, and develops an ear for rock music and a taste for peanut butter. Slowly, unexpectedly, he forges bonds with Martin’s family, and in picking up the pieces of the professor’s shattered personal life, he begins to see hope and beauty in the humans’ imperfections and to question the mission that brought him here.

Praised by The New York Times as a “novelist of great seriousness and talent,” Matt Haig delivers an unlikely story about human nature and the joy found in the messiness of life on Earth. The Humans is a funny, compulsively readable tale that playfully and movingly explores the ultimate subject—ourselves.

About the Author:

MATT HAIG suffered a breakdown in his early twenties. After battling depression for a long time he turned to writing, and he now believes that reading and writing books saved his life.

His books have been translated into thirty languages. All his novels for adults have been optioned for film. Matt lives in York with his wife and their two children.

“Funny, clever and quite, quite lovely.” (Sunday Times (London))

“Extraordinary.” (Independent (UK))

“An absolute corker of a novel: very clever, and very moving, and that rare and precious thing -laugh-out-loud funny.” (Daily Mail (UK))

“Matt Haig is a novelist of stunning talent, with a laser eye for the absurd and endless reserves of compassion. (Parade Picks)” (Parade)

“A thought-provoking, compulsively readable delight.” (Booklist (starred review))

“Delightful.” (Publishers Weekly (starred review))

“Quick-paced, touching, and hilarious.” (Library Journal (starred review))
