Reviews

  • Vintage Nick Hornby. Very funny and very clever, and packed with wit and brilliance

    Spectator
  • A dark espresso-length comedy that nobody else could have written

    New Statesman
  • The writing is so funny and the set-pieces so brilliant

    The Times
  • Perhaps the most poised piece of writing Hornby has yet produced . . . only this writer has the wit and the stringency to take on this easy comedy and draw compelling, even universal pathos from it

    Observer
  • Brilliantly funny

    Heat
  • Pins you in your armchair and won't let go . . . How to be Good? How to be bloody marvellous more like

    Mail on Sunday
  • It does exactly what it says on the cover. Hornby's prose is artful and effortless, his spiky wit as razored as a number-two cut
