MATTHEW QUICK: LOVE MAY FAIL

THURSDAY, JUNE 25, DURHAM

THE REGULATOR BOOKSHOP—Sony has already picked up the movie rights on Matthew Quick's latest novel, released earlier this month. And why not? Quick's Silver Linings Playbook was an award-winning movie success, and Love May Fail traffics in similarly broken characters who refuse to let life beat them. Written in four distinct sections, the novel begins with Portia Kane fleeing a bad marriage to a Florida porn king and returning home to New Jersey against her better instincts. From there it segues into a series of narrators with varying viewpoints, all marked by Quick's typical surface froth that masks dark undercurrents, which has landed the Outer Banks-based author on recent reading lists from Cosmo and Marie Claire. Quick also appears at Quail Ridge Books & Music (June 24, 7 p.m.) and Flyleaf Books (June 26, 7 p.m.). 7 p.m., free,
