The Silver Linings Playbook by Matthew Quick

Pat Peoples has issues. The mere mention of a certain Pacific Northwest saxophone player with the initials K.G. sends him over the edge. He believes his life is a film directed by God - and if he performs well enough he'll achieve his dream: getting back together with his exwife, Nikki. Matthew Quick slowly teases out the truth about the wife that Pat idolizes through a series of hilariously poignant vignettes. An amazing debut novel not to be missed. Give this one to fans of Jonathan Tropper's This Is Where I Leave You.
