'Hornby is the poet of the everyday' Observer
Lucy married just the sort of man you might expect: a university graduate who runs his own business. Unfortunately he turned out to have serious dependency issues.
Joseph is shaking off the memory of his last date, a girl who ticked all the right boxes and also drove him up the wall.
On an average Saturday morning in a butcher's shop in North London, Lucy and Joseph meet on opposite sides of the counter. She is a teacher and mother of two, with a past she is trying to forget; he is an aspiring DJ with a wide-open future that maybe needs to start becoming more focused. Lucy and Joseph are opposites in almost all ways. Can something life-changing grow from uncommon ground?
Nick Hornby's brilliantly observed, tender and brutally funny new novel gets to the heart of what it means to fall headlong in love with the best possible person - someone who may not be just like you at all.
'A writer who dares to be witty, intelligent and emotionally generous at once' New York Times
'Hornby's prose is artful and effortless, his spiky wit as razored as a number-two cut' Independent
'Hornby writes with a funny, fresh voice which skewers male and female foibles with hilarious accuracy' Guardian
