Personally, I’d like another novella from Warner’s POV. But oh well, beggars can’t be choosers.

BRACE YOURSELVES! People will undoubtedly be jumping ship after this novella comes out.

Time to choose your allegiances, people. Are you a Warner Warrior?…or part of the Adam Army?

Forgive Me, Leonard Peacock: New novel from the author of Silver Linings Playbook, Matthew Quick

The author of Silver Linings Playbook, Matthew Quick, has released a new book entitled, Forgive Me, Leonard Peacock.

BLURB:

In addition to the P-38, there are four gifts, one for each of my friends. I want to say good-bye to them properly. I want to give them each something to remember me by. To let them know I really cared about them and I’m sorry I couldn’t be more than I was—that I couldn’t stick around—and that what’s going to happen today isn’t their fault.

Today is Leonard Peacock’s birthday. It is also the day he hides a gun in his backpack. Because today is the day he will kill his former best friend, and then himself, with his grandfather’s P-38 pistol.

But first he must say good-bye to the four people who matter most to him: his Humphrey Bogart-obsessed next-door neighbor, Walt; his classmate Baback, a violin virtuoso; Lauren, the Christian homeschooler he has a crush on; and Herr Silverman, who teaches the high school’s class on the Holocaust. Speaking to each in turn, Leonard slowly reveals his secrets as the hours tick by and the moment of truth approaches.

In this riveting book, acclaimed author Matthew Quick unflinchingly examines the impossible choices that must be made—and the light in us all that never goes out.

I personally haven’t read Silver Linings Playbook since the copies I’ve seen in my country are all the movie covers and I have a terrible distaste for books with movie covers. Don’t ask why, I just do.

Forgive Me, Leonard Peacock looks really good, huh? I can’t wait to get it. Fingers crossed that it’ll be available in my country soon.

I’ve also heard that there’s already a film adaptation underway of this book. Woah. Didn’t realize Hollywood moved that fast, hehe.
