Product Details

Praise

“A follow up to High Fidelity…About a Boy is an acerbic, emotionally richer yet no less funny tale…shrewdly hilarious.”—Entertainment Weekly 

“Hornby is a writer who dares to be witty, intelligent and emotionally generous all at once. He combines a skilled, intuitive appreciation for the rigors of comic structure with highly original insights about the way the enchantments of popular culture insinuate themselves into middle-class notions of romance.”—The New York Times Book Review

“The conversations between Will and Marcus are hilariously loopy.”—The Boston Globe

“An amusing male-bonding theme…stylish, well-observed”—People

“Writing with real ‘soul.'”—Harper’s Bazaar

“An utterly charming, picaresque tale of an older guy, a young kid, and the funky, dysfunctional real-life ties that bind—and unbind.”—Vogue
