A heartwarming debut novel, now a major movie by David O. Russellùnominated for eight Academy Awards (including Best Picture), four Golden Globes, and four Screen Actors Guild Awards! ôAawww shucks!ö NPR's Nancy Pearl said. ôI know thatÆs hardly a usual way to begin a book review, but it was my immediate response to finishing Matthew QuickÆs heartwarming, humorous and soul-satisfying first novel . . . This book makes me smile.ö 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 endingùthe 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, PatÆs now home, and everything feels off. No one will talk to him about Nikki; his beloved Philadelphia Eagles keep losing; heÆs being pursued by the deeply odd Tiffany; his new therapist seems to recommend adultery as a form of therapy. Plus, heÆs 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 magazineÆs 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: ôTender, soulful, hilarious, and true, The Silver Linings Playbook is a wonderful debut.ö
