Matthew Quick

After his mother's death, 38-year-old Bartholomew Neil has no idea how to live on his own. He relies on support from his red-headed grief counselor, Wendy, and Father McNamee, a priest at his church. But when Bartholomew finds a letter from Richard Gere among his mother's possessions, he begins a one-sided correspondence with the actor, culminating in a life-altering trip to Canada to find his biological father. Along for the ride are "Girlbrarian," his secret crush at the library he frequents, her foul-mouthed brother, and Fr. McNamee. More quirky, feel-good fiction from the author of The Silver Linings Playbook (2008).
