你不知道現在試圖奮力扭轉卻依舊文風不動的低潮困境, 會在哪一天以哪一種形式,悄悄改變生命的視野。

波夏.肯恩的情緒瀕臨失控崩潰。
那天晚上,她持槍躲在臥室的櫥櫃裡,打算將專拍色情片、信奉大男人主義又滿溢歧視心態的土豪老公,連同長得像影集《冰與火之歌》裡飾演卡麗熙的女星的外遇小三,在放浪銷魂之際用一顆子彈送他們上西天。沒想到在最後關頭,波夏無法自抑地狂笑出聲,不但放這兩個人一條生路,同時揮別了在佛羅里達的豪奢生活,喝得醉醺醺地搭飛機返回老家南澤西。 

在故鄉等候波夏的,有愛將東西囤滿家中每一處的母親、戒掉毒癮在餐館當服務生的高中同學、熱愛金屬搖滾樂的六歲小男孩和他身材健美的帥氣舅舅,這些人令她回憶起過去的成長點滴,並想起了那位深深影響她看待人生方式的英文老師弗能先生。當波夏聽聞恩師因為一樁遭學生持球棒攻擊的事件而選擇「被退休」之後,她認為「拯救弗能先生」將是自己無可逃避的任務,唯有這麼做才能解決她婚姻一敗塗地、人生至今一事無成、想寫小說卻遲遲不曾動筆的種種問題。 

這究竟只是波夏.肯恩的一廂情願,或者真的是改變她生命的關鍵行動?

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.

An aspiring feminist and under-appreciated 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?
