Bookshop Santa Cruz staff recommendation:

A Long Way Down by Nick Hornby

The premise of this book may sound like a downer, but as with all of Hornby’s books, any darkness and sadness is infused with light, humor, and insight. Hornby’s dry, British sense of humor never fails to make me laugh, his characters are always fully developed and complex, and his books are always odd yet heartwarming. This great book was just made into a movie, so read it before the film hits the U.S.!
