Independent bookstores selected Matthew Quick’s “We Are the Light” as its top pick for November reading, but “The Silver Linings Playbook” bestselling author tells us about the
incredible struggle to get his most recent novel onto bookshelves. It came out of one of the darkest times in Quick’s life where he suffered from eight years of writer’s block. He emerged from this time with an emotional, hopeful novel that tackles the mind-altering effects of grief, mental health, toxic masculinity, gun violence and the healing power of community and the arts.
