Praise

Praise for Dickens and Prince:

“Smart, witty and weirdly convincing… Pop culture is political to Hornby. Beneath this latest book’s stocking-filler-light surface, you can sense a subtle sort of crusade. By pairing these two artists, he’s making a couple of implicit assertions — that Prince is as important as Dickens and that Dickens is as fun as Prince.” —The Times (London)
 
“His book is both a love letter to two artists who have nourished him and the story of how they ‘caught fire and lit up the world.'” —The Guardian

“If you’ve forgotten what a distinct pleasure it is to read Nick Hornby, may I suggest Dickens and Prince.”San Francisco Chronicle

“I love this. It’s smart and funny and elegantly persuasive.” —Robert Douglas-Fairhurst, author of Becoming Dickens

“Hornby’s admiration for his subjects is infectious… a zesty tribute to two cultural legends not often spoken about in the same breath.” —Publishers Weekly

“An ardent fan letter from Hornby that makes you want to re-read Great Expectations while listening to Sign o’ the Times. This slim, companionable volume combines biography—Dickens’s impoverished childhood, Prince’s bruising battle with his record label—as it champions the creative impulse to always make more: more novels, more songs. A love letter to maximalism.” Vogue


Praise for Nick Hornby:

“Hornby is a writer who dares to be witty, intelligent, and emotionally generous all at once.” —The New York Times

“The clever British storyteller …[has] excellent taste and a smart, irreverent sense of humor.” —The Boston Globe

“Hornby just makes it look easy.” —The Washington Post
