The Good Luck of Right Now (Paperback)
March 2014 Indie Next List
“Can the hero of a coming-of-age-story be 39 years old? Is Jung's theory of synchronicity a valid supposition? And what would Richard Gere do? These and other intriguing questions are addressed in Quick's poignant new novel. After the death of his mother, Bartholomew Neil faces the future alone, pitifully unprepared for the realities of life. He embarks upon a one-sided correspondence with Gere, and although there is never a response, it somehow provides the wisdom and support Bartholomew needs to confront the mysteries of his past and to meet the challenges of his future. Accompanied by an appealing array of eccentric characters, Bartholomew makes his own good luck and thoroughly engages the reader in the process.”
