Kim’s March Recommendation #1

The Good Luck of Right Now by Matthew Quick
good luck of right now
When his mother dies, 38-year-old Bartholomew Neil, who doesn’t know how to be on his own, discovers a letter in his mother’s underwear drawer that causes him to write a series of highly intimate letters to actor Richard Gere, while embarking on a quest to find out where he belongs.
“I loved the novel’s wonderful, struggling, beautiful characters who live and breathe and deal with mental illness and difficult life experiences.  This book combines seemingly incongruous elements like fan letters to Richard Gere, feral cats in the capital of Canada, Catholic priests and martyrs, grief, and aliens.   Quick pulls it all together in a very readable, inspiring way.  This one will stay with you.”- Kim
