Matthew Quick, author of the book “Silver Linings Playbook,” which has been made into a major motion picture starring Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence, joined Good Day Sacramento via satellite this morning.
Matthew said the book was not autobiographical, but was a metaphor for what he was going through in his personal life.
“The book is fiction, but metaphorically, definitely. I was going through a rough time. I was going through a depression at the time, and the writing was a way for me to deal with that…get my thoughts on the page and sort out the things in my life,” said Quick.

Quick says he couldn’t be happier to see the main roles played by actors who are at the height of their game.
“Silver Linings Playbook” has received multiple SAG award nominations.
