Pat Peoples ha una missione: diventare fisicamente tonico ed emotivamente stabile. Per ricongiungersi con la moglie Nikki. Così ha deciso durante il periodo nella clinica psichiatrica dove ha trascorso un tempo che non ricorda, ma che deve essere stato piuttosto lungo... Infatti, ora che è tornato a casa, molte cose sembrano cambiate: i suoi vecchi amici sono tutti sposati, gli Eagles di Philadelphia hanno un nuovo stadio ma, soprattutto, nessuno parla più di Nikki. Dov’è finita? Come poterla contattare e chiedere scusa per le cose terribili che le ha detto l’ultima volta che l’ha vista? Per fortuna Pat incontra Tiffany che, in cambio dell’aiuto per partecipare a un concorso di danza, si offre di fare da tramite tra lui e sua moglie. Ma qual è la verità? Per tutto il tempo Pat guarda il mondo con sguardo incantato, cogliendone solo il bello e, anche se tutto è confuso, trabocca di squinternato ottimismo, perché dietro le nuvole c’è sempre il sole.
Questo romanzo è già apparso, presso Salani, con il titolo L'orlo argenteo delle nuvole.

Just saw the movie and I cried like a little girl.. The next day, after reading the book... Well, I'm a little disappointed in the book. The movie was excellent.

What a fun book! I’m sure it’s enjoyable for anyone that doesn’t have a stick up their ass, but it’s the kind of book that even non-readers will love, too, because it’s an easy read, and the chapters are short, and it’s entertaining the whole way through, and it’s funny as hell. Our narrator, Pat Pe Leggi tutto
I loved the movie, so I thought I would enjoy the book and it was delightful, very charming and full of silver linings. This is a book about mental illness and recovery from so it is weird that it has such a light tone. It works though. I really empathized with Pat and Tiffany and their odyssey to w Leggi tutto
I read many, many, many books. I am happy to read anything from classic fiction to pure escapist chic lit. I don't mind mediocre writing, gratuitous sex scenes or weak predictable plots since the authors allow me to enter another world for one or two hours every day, and for that I am grateful.

Well, thank god that's over. I don't know what's wrong with me, considering everyone else seems to think this is a good book (4 stars). Me - not so much. I can see how I would like the movie though. I should just stick with that. Maybe you just can't go from Pat Conroy's "Lords of Discipline" and He Leggi tutto
