Fiction Selection: The Silver Linings Playbook by Matthew Quick

Pat Peoples, the narrator, is down on his luck. The former high school history teacher has just been released from a mental institution and placed in the care of his mother.  Pat struggles to fit in and resolve many of his personal issues.  Pat always tries to "be kind rather than right" and is confident that with hard work, on his part, that his life will lead to a happy ending.

While the movie is based upon the book, it tells a different story.  If you have seen the movie, read the novel and let's discuss.

    I can't make it after all. I did read the book, though, and loved it. I probably wouldn't have picked it up otherwise, so thanks for making this the fiction selection. Have fun!
