FROM THE MILLION-COPY BESTSELLING AUTHOR OF ABOUT A BOY 31 Songs is best-selling author Nicky Hornby’s ultimate desert island disksThrough thirty-one songs that he either loves or has loved, Nick Hornby tells us what music means to his life. These personal and passionate pieces – refreshingly free of pretension – are a celebration of the joy that certain songs have given him. Together with additional writings on music from his column in the new Yorker – seen in the UK for the first time – 31 Songs is for Hornby what many of us have always wanted: a soundtrack to accompany life.Winner of The National Book Critics Circle award, this funny and touchingly personal book is a must for music fans everywhere.’Original, well written and wholly lacking in pretension…as good a book about pop music as I have read in many years and the most accomplished of Hornby’s books so far’ Spectator’Funny, provocative, immensely readable. It is not simply about music…it is about Hornby, and us, and about being alive. His enthusiasm is such that he makes me want to be a better listener – and I can offer no better compliment. A triumph’ Tim Lott, Evening Standard’Refreshing, candid, very moving. Reminds you why you loved music before you knew enough to explain your love away’ Uncut
