Nick Hornby...this guy's got "it"
On a recent vacation, I've really gotten into Hornby's writing. He's smart, witty, with just the right amount of pop culture references...I've read:
About A Boy
How To Be Good
And they're all great, although How to be Good is a bit much for my taste. About A Boy, in particular, is a fabulously true and intelligent book.
Plus, his work is just so delectably British.
