The Happiness Factory

The Accidental Immigrants | The Happiness Factory | Motherland | News | About

The Happiness Factory was published by Bluemoose Books in 2022.

“Where the skin of the earth shudders into the foothills of the Shunhua mountains, in a clearing above the mist and fringed with frangipani, Mo Moore set up a factory which, to this day, makes happiness.”

The Happiness Factory
is about the families we run from and a love story to the families we make for ourselves – sometimes in the most unexpected places. It’s a portrait of a country as it emerges from a Maoist past into its roaring global present – a land of pointing fingers and blind eyes, of closed doors and open secrets, of rules and recklessness. And at the heart of the novel are fathers: the way they make you and mark you, and how they follow you, however far you go – even to the furthest edge of China.
