Nick Hornby

Just Like You
  • Just Like You

  • 'Hornby is the poet of the everyday' Observer

    The person you are with is just like you: same background, same age, same interests. The perfect match. And it is a disaster.

    Then, when and where you least expect it, you meet someone new. You seem to have nothing in common and yet, somehow, it feels totally right.

    Nick Hornby's brilliantly observed, tender but also brutally funny new novel gets to the heart of what it means to fall surprisingly and headlong in love with the best possible person - someone who is not just like you at all.
