WITH AUTHOR MATTHEW QUICK
For three years, Matthew Quick lived off his nest egg, pounding away at a typewriter in his in-laws basement like a man possessed. Everyone thought he was nuts, until the Weinstein Company bought the movie rights. Now When Matthew Quick was thinking of quitting his job as a high-school English teacher to write his first novel, almost everyone he knew told him he was nuts. But it’s paid off. In September, “Silver Linings Playbook” won the audience award at the Toronto International Film Festival. And Entertainment Weekly recently called the movie an Oscar Best Picture front-runner.
