“All I have to say about these songs is that I love them, and want to sing along to them, and force other people to listen to them, and get cross when these other people don’t like them as much as I do.” —Nick Hornby, from Songbook
A wise and hilarious collection from the bestselling author of Funny Girl, About a Boy, and High Fidelity.
Songs, songwriters, and why and how they get under our skin…
Songbook is Nick Hornby’s labor of love. A shrewd, funny, and completely unique collection of musings on pop music, why it’s good, what makes us listen and love it, and the ways in which it attaches itself to our lives—all with the beat of a perfectly mastered mix tape.
From the Trade Paperback edition.
