Interview with Matthew Quick, bestselling author of Silver Linings Playbook

| E:18

This week we are back with another author interview, this time with bestselling author Matthew Quick, the man behind the popular The Silver Linings Playbook which was also adapted into the Academy Award nominated film. In his conversation with Adam, Matthew shares how Silver Linings Playbook became both a book and a movie (and not necessarily in the order you might think!) and also talks about his writing process and how he transitioned into writing Young Adult novels. His newest book Every Exquisite Thing will be released in May.
