Reviews

"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
