Nick Hornby is one of the warmest voices in literature. Whether it is fiction or non-fiction, his writing is always wise, heartfelt and very very funny. His take on music, football and relationships, and the passion with which he writes about them make him a truly unique talent.
Hornby’s new novel, Funny Girl, is set in the 1960s, based around tv comedy series I Love Lucy. As always, Hornby brilliantly captures the lives and passions of his characters, varying from the shows writers, its director, its male lead, and a former Miss Blackpool who, inspired by I Love Lucy, wants nothing more than to make people laugh.
A new Nick Hornby novel is always cause for celebration. His warmth and sense of fun shines through in everything he writes, and if you have ever read his books, you will know what marvellous companions his characters are. We simply cannot wait to meet the man behind all of those unforgettable voices.
