Synopsis

From the New York Times bestselling author of The Silver Linings Playbook.

'Brilliant . . . compulsively readable . . . Love May Fail is as wholly transporting as any cinematic experience' GQ

Portia Kane has escaped her cheating husband only to find herself back at square one, living with her mum in a place she thought she'd left behind forever. Lost and alone, looking to find the goodness she believes still exists in the world, Portia sets off to save herself by saving someone else - a beloved high school English teacher who has retired after a traumatic incident.

Can Chuck, the handsome brother of Portia's old school friend, together with a sassy nun and a metal-head little boy, help Portia's chances in her bid for renewed hope in the human race?

Moving and funny, Love May Fail by Matthew Quick is about the heartache and daring choices it takes to become the person you know deep down you are meant to be.
