Author of the Day: Nick Hornby
Nick Hornby is a favorite author of mine because I enjoyed High Fidelity so much.
I did not realize he had so many non-fiction books in addition to his novels. Fever Pitch is a memoir about being an avid football fan. Songbook is a collection of essays inspired by certain pop songs. The last three on the list intrigue me the most because they are collections of Hornby's book reviews from The Believer magazine.
Those I have read are in red; those on my TBR shelf are in blue.
