High Fideltity / Fever Pitch / How To Be Good / About A Boy

High Fidelity - If you missed it the first time . . . Nick Hornby's acclaimed first novel High Fidelity. ‘Brilliant . . . a very funny and concise explanation of why we men are as we are. If you are male, you should read it and then make your partner read it, so they will no longer hate you but pity you instead.’ - Harry Enfield, Independent on Sunday. ‘It's quite sad, very funny and extremely cleverly observed.’ - Mail on Sunday.

Fever Pitch - A hilarious exploration of what drives men to football - by the man who made funny, self-deprecating, thirty-something fiction hot property ages before Bridget Jones stumbled onto the scene.

How To Be Good - Nick Hornby gets inside the head of a mixed-up mum in this hilariously smart tale of modern marriage, parenthood and low or no fidelity

About A Boy - When Will meets Marcus, an uncool 12-year-old with the wrong hair, clothes, taste in music and a suicidal mother, he needs help. Arrested adolescent that he is, Will is the man for the job
