You are so going to want to order yourself a copy of The Silver Linings Playbook: A Novel by Matthew M. Quick. The book is not released until September 2nd, but it is already racking up much-deserved praise.
Matthew and I have never met in person, but for a few years now have been friends via email. You couldn’t find a more charming and kind-hearted fellow, who is hard working and honest and extremely talented. I couldn’t be happier for his success (which just keeps coming and coming).
Keep your eye on this guy as he is a star in the making (though in my book, he’s already a star).
