by Matthew Quick


Reminiscent of "The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time", "The Good Luck of Right Now" follows the story of Bartholomew Neil after the death of his mother, who he has relied on his entire life.  Now that Bartholomew has to find his own way, he comes to realize at age 38  just how little he knows about being an adult.  With the addition of a quirky group of supporting characters including: a bipolar Catholic priest, a shy "girlbrarian", Richard Gere, and a cat enthusiast who has an affinity for the f-word Quick manages to bring his characters to life through writing reminiscent of our own trains of thought.  For those who enjoy hopeful, funny, psychological fiction (and are not overly offended by the use of swear words) pick up this book and learn about the theory known as the good luck of right now.
