Matthew Quick | Love May Fail

Wed, June 17, 2015 7:30 P.M.
Parkway Central Library

Cost: FREE

Matthew Quick exploded into the literary world in 2008 with his “charmingly nerve-wracking” (NPR) bestselling novel Silver Linings Playbook, a quirkily humane paean to mental illness and love that was adapted into the Academy Award-winning film. He is also the author of The Good Luck of Right Now, an inspiring story about friendship, grief, and Richard Gere. His young adult novels Sorta Like a RockstarBoy21, and Forgive Me, Leonard Peacock speak to—but never down to—teenage readers. In Love May Fail, a scorned housewife, aided by her hoarder mother, a brassy nun, an ex-drug addict, and a metal-head youngster, embark on an odyssey of self-discovery.
