Staff Reviews

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.!

— Flannery


A wise, affecting novel from the beloved, award-winning author of Funny Girl, High Fidelity, and About A Boy.

Nick Hornby mines the hearts and psyches of four lost souls who connect just when they've reached the end of the line.

In four distinct and riveting first-person voices, Hornby tells a story of four individuals confronting the limits of choice, circumstance, and their own mortality. This is a tale of connections made and missed, punishing regrets, and the grace of second chances.
