About This Book
A heartwarming debut novel, now a major movie by David O. Russell--nominated for eight Academy Awards (including Best Picture), four Golden Globes, and four Screen Actors Guild Awards!
"Aawww shucks!" NPR's Nancy Pearl said. ¡°I know that¡¯s hardly a usual way to begin a book review, but it was my immediate response to finishing Matthew Quick¡¯s heartwarming, humorous and soul-satisfying first novel . . . This book makes me smile.¡±
Meet Pat Peoples. Pat has a theory: his life is a movie produced by God. And his God-given mission is to become physically fit and emotionally literate, whereupon God will ensure him a happy ending--the return of his estranged wife, Nikki. (It might not come as a surprise to learn that Pat has spent several years in a mental health facility.) The problem is, Pat¡¯s now home, and everything feels off. No one will talk to him about Nikki; his beloved Philadelphia Eagles keep losing; he¡¯s being pursued by the deeply odd Tiffany; his new therapist seems to recommend adultery as a form of therapy. Plus, he¡¯s being haunted by Kenny G!
David O. Russell, the Oscar-nominated director of The Fighter, is helming his own adaptation of The Silver Linings Playbook, featuring Bradley Cooper (People magazine¡¯s Sexiest Man Alive) in the role of Pat, alongside Jennifer Lawrence, Robert De Niro, Julia Stiles, Chris Tucker, and Jacki Weaver. As the award-winning novelist Justin Cronin put it: ¡°Tender, soulful, hilarious, and true, The Silver Linings Playbook is a wonderful debut.¡±
