Publisher Description

An aspiring feminist and underappreciated housewife embarks on an odyssey to find human decency and goodness—and her high school English teacher—in New York Times bestselling author Matthew Quick’s offbeat masterpiece, a quirky ode to love, fate, and hair metal.

Portia Kane is having a meltdown. After escaping her ritzy Florida life and her cheating pornographer husband, she finds herself back in South Jersey, a place that remains largely unchanged from the years of her unhappy youth. Lost and alone, looking to find the goodness in the world she believes still exists, Portia sets off to save herself by saving someone else—a beloved high school English teacher who has retired after a traumatic incident.

Will a sassy nun, an ex-heroin addict, a metal-head little boy, and her hoarder mother help or hurt her chances on this madcap quest to restore a good man’s reputation and find renewed hope in the human race? Love May Fail is a story of the great highs and lows of existence: the heartache and daring choices it takes to become the person you know (deep down) you are meant to be.

Great Read

Matthew Quick does it again. He draws you in and soon you are turning pages to see what is next. I never want his books to end.

READER BEWARE

This is a typical Matthew Quick novel, meaning it is excellent; an ironically relatable page-turner. HOWEVER, I almost threw it away at a little less than the halfway mark. Without spoiling anything for anyone, think twice before reading this if you're an absurdly sensitive animal lover. It took me several days to get over the fate of little Albert Camus. But then again, I guess that's the mark of great writing...to reach in and touch your soul a little. Read at your own risk!

Extraordinary!

I have read all of Matthew Quick's books and this was one of my favorites! I laughed, cried, and couldn't put this book down! Mr. Quick's style of writing is captivating and I fell in love with the characters instantly. "Love May Fail" is a must read for everyone this summer!
