Matthew Quick is the author of The Good Luck of Right Now. Bartholomew has lived with his mother for 38 years. When she gets sick and dies, he has no idea how to be on his own. His counselor says he needs to find his flock and leave the nest. But how does a man whose life has been grounded in his mom, Saturday mass, and the library learn how to fly? Bartholomew thinks he has found a clue when he discovers a “free Tibet” letter from Richard Gere in his mother’s drawer and the adventure begins.
