I WAS completely charmed by Matthew Quick’s The Silver Linings Playbook. But it was the book that had me singing the author’s praises; I’ve not seen the big-screen adaptation. Still swooning from the memory of that book, you can imagine how eager I was to get my hands on a copy of this month’s buyer’s pick, Quick’s The Good Luck of Right Now. Bartholomew Neil has lived every one of his 38 years with his mother. When she dies, he has to figure out how to live alone. He finds he isn’t really alone, as a priest, a “Girlbrarian,” her brother and the spirit of Richard Gere help him create a family of his own. Quick’s depictions of relationships are so real and, ultimately, hopeful and inspiring that I hope everyone will thank their lucky stars for a book like this one.
