Back to Meet the Authors

Matthew Quick’s first novel, “The Silver Linings Playbook,” was adapted into an Academy Award-winning movie starring Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence. His work has been translated into more than 20 languages. He also writes for young adults. His 2012 novel, “Boy 21,” was called by The New York Times “more than a first-rate novel fueled by basketball; it’s a first-rate work of art.” His new young adult novel is “Forgive Me, Leonard Peacock” (Little Brown/Hachette).
