An enchanting first novel about love, madness, and Kenny G. A New York Times bestseller, The Silver Linings Playbook was adapted into the Oscar-winning movie starring Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence. It tells the riotous and poignant story of how one man regains his memory and comes to terms with the magnitude of his wife's betrayal. During the years he spends in a neural health facility, Pat Peoples formulates a theory about silver linings: he believes his life is a movie produced by God, his mission is to become physically fit and emotionally supportive, and his happy ending will be the return of his estranged wife, Nikki. When Pat goes to live with his parents, everything seems changed: no one will talk to him about Nikki; his old friends are saddled with families; the Philadelphia Eagles keep losing, making his father moody; and his new therapist seems to be recommending adultery as a form of therapy. When Pat meets the tragically widowed and clinically depressed Tiffany, she offers to act as a liaison between him and his wife, if only he will give up watching football, agree to perform in this year's Dance Away Depression competition, and promise not to tell anyone about their "contract." All the while, Pat keeps searching for his silver lining. In this brilliantly written debut novel, Matthew Quick takes us inside Pat's mind, deftly showing us the world from his distorted yet endearing perspective. The result is a touching and funny story that helps us look at both depression and love in a wonderfully refreshing way.

Margaret Foster is one of New Zealand's best-known netball coaches and one of the game's most insightful analysts. She has also just completed a course of chemotherapy for her second round of cancer. Silver Linings tells the story of Margaret's fight to survive cancer. Beginning with her first diagnosis of breast cancer in 2006, through to her joy at being given the all clear and then the later news that the cancer had spread to her ovaries, it describes, in an often painful but also humorous way, the realities of life as a cancer patient. Her account contains a strong self-help angle, where Margaret uses her skills learned as a professional coach to encourage other cancer sufferers, giving them hope, faith and a sense of purpose. She believes that people will be better able to cope if they know what they are in for. She also covers the netball stories: detailing the highs and lows of both her playing and coaching careers, analysing her own coaches and letting us in on a few behind the scenes secrets. Marg also shares the story of her adoption into a Pakeha family. This is an emotional and touching story that will reach out to other New Zealanders who are affected by cancer.
