the silver linings playbook

I LOVED the novel The Silver Linings Playbook and can’t remember the last time a book made me feel just plain ol’ happy.  I look forward to reading more of Matthew Quick’s novels.  If you get a chance to read the book BEFORE the move, do so.  I’d be curious to know how you think the novel compares to the film.

Here’s a great interview with Matthew Quick (“Q”), who has insightful things to say about the mental health community and how he dared to pursue his dream of writing, even if it mean getting down to it in his in-laws basement.

  1. Thanks for the tip. I couldn’t decide whether to see the film or read the book first and my indecision led me to do neither. Buying it this weekend!
