The good luck of right now

Quick, Matthew, 1973-2015
Books
Bartholomew Neil is 39 and lost. He's lived his whole life, up till a few weeks ago, with his devoted mum, but now she has died he has no idea how to be on his own. His grief counsellor, Wendy, says he needs to find his flock and leave the nest. So he writes to Richard Gere, the man his mum adored from afar, in the hope he can offer some answers. In his letters he explores philosophy and friendship, alien abduction and the mystery of women. He also reveals his heart-breaking need of a family, but when he does manage to assemble a motley family of sorts, he seems to have taken on more than he bargained for.
