About the Author
In the six months that followed his leaving teaching and the Philadelphia area, Matthew Quick floated down the Peruvian Amazon and formed 'The Bardbarians' (a two-man literary circle), backpacked around Southern Africa, hiked to the bottom of a snowy Grand Canyon, soul-searched, and finally began writing full-time. His debut novel, "The Silver Linings Playbook", was adapted into the Oscar-winning movie starring Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence.

Matthew earned his Creative Writing MFA through Goddard College. He has since returned to the Philadelphia area, where he lives with his wife and their greyhound.



Ray Porter is a prolific voice actor that has recorded for over 100 audio books and dozens of television series, video games and video shorts. Among his wide variety of audiobook credits are "The Silver Linings Playbook", "The Black Hole War", and the "Joe Ledger" series. He claims, With every book I ve done, I have found that the author has a voice and if I can just do my best to stay out of the way of that voice, then the writer will convey what he s trying to put across. So for me, it s really more about enabling the text and what the author is trying to say.
