Understanding. Readers looking for a charming novel that helps you feel good about humanity should consider reading Matthew Quick’s The Good Luck of Right Now. This may be the most unusual novel I’ve read in a long time. Protagonist Bartholomew Neil grieves the death of his mother, with whom he has lived for all thirty-eight years of his life. Structured as a series of letters that Bartholomew writes to Richard Gere, we follow the cast of troubled characters on a journey toward understanding and a future that leads them to rely and depend on each other.
Rating: Four-star (I like it)
