    Synopsis

    Pat Peoples has a theory that his life is actually a movie produced by God, and that his God-given mission in life is to become emotionally literate, whereupon God will ensure a happy ending – which, for Pat, means the return of his estranged wife Nikki, from whom he's currently having some apart time. It might not come as any surprise to learn that Pat has spent several years in a mental health facility.When Pat leaves hospital and goes to live with his parents, however, everything seems changed: no one will talk to him about Nikki; his old friends now have families; his beloved football team keep losing; his new therapist seems to be recommending adultery as a form of therapy. And he's being haunted by Kenny G. There is a silver lining, however, in the form of tragically widowed, physically fit and clinically depressed Tiffany, who offers to act as a go-between for Pat and his wife, if Pat will just agree to perform in this year's Dance Away Depression competition...Matthew Quick's debut novel has garnered praise and attention world-wide, and has also been turned in to an Academy Award nominated film. Quirky, empassioned and endearing - you'll fall in love with these characters and their story.
