Praise
"Mr. Quick guides the reader through the mounting tension -- a braiding of hope, illusion, befuddlement and newly discovered truths. Not every cloud has a silver lining in THE SILVER LININGS PLAYBOOK, but it is hard not to be moved by the fate of a man who, despite many ordeals, tries to believe in hope and fidelity, not to mention getting through another day with his sanity intact."
"Pat Peoples is the protagonist and the narrator of THE SILVER LININGS PLAYBOOK. I found him compelling and fascinating, and I found myself not only caring about him but rooting for him unashamedly, which, for an author is, I believe, what they mean by scoring a tour de force."
From the Publisher
Annotation Matthew Quick's debut novel centers on an unflinching optimist named Pat Peoples. Interpersonal trauma pushed the compulsive Pat over the edge, and when the story opens, he's still in the "bad place," as he calls the psych hospital. The amnesiac is released to his parents' house, where he embarks on a rigorous daily routine of extreme exercise and hydration. Quick portrays Pat's psychological recovery with an affectionate sense of humor. Along the way the reader comes to empathize with Pat--understanding why he's still obsessed with his unfaithful, absent wife but might be interested in his neighbor and why he hates Kenny G. but loves the Philadelphia Eagles.
First Line "I don't have to look up to know Mom is making another surprise visit. Her toenails are always pink during the summer months, and I recognize the flower design imprinted on her leather sandals; it's what Mom purchased the last time she signed me out of the bad place and took me to the mall."
