How Many Paper Airplanes Grace The LOVE MAY FAIL Cover?

“…dark but never entirely bleak. There’s always reason to hope in [Quick’s] novels…[a] lovely, entertaining book.” NY Daily News
“The turn of a few pages is all it took for me to fall in love with Matthew Quick’s latest homage to the subtleties of joy…a madly quirky, utterly lovely world.” The Roanoke Times ***This one points out exactly how many paper airplanes appear on the cover. I hadn't previously counted.

An Interview, A Review, And Two Pics

“'You can be a fiction writer' was a story I told myself, not one I inherited." The Mountain Xpress Asheville, NC interview: http://mountainx.com/arts/matthew-quick-delights-and-devastates-in-latest-novel-love-may-fail/http://mountainx.com/arts/matthew-quick-delights-and-devastates-in-latest-novel-love-may-fail/

“Instead of breaking your heart, Quick steals it, strengthens it and gives it back…a fine writer with a gift similar to that of fellow American novelist John Irving — creating quirky, flawed but ultimately lovable and deeply human main characters.” Winnipeg Free Press http://www.winnipegfreepress.com/arts-and-life/entertainment/books/livin-on-a-prayer-308609221.html

I have to admit, the below absolutely made my day!
“…brilliant…compulsively readable…a plot that keeps you guessing…wholly transporting…Quick has a uniquely rewarding voice and one that, for his native Philadelphia, is creating a space in contemporary fiction all of its own.” GQ (UK) http://www.gq-magazine.co.uk/entertainment/articles/2015-06/19/love-may-fail-matthew-quick-book-review
