Books by Nick Hornby (13)

  • A brilliantly true and incredibly funny new screenplay from Oscar-nominated script writer and one of UK's most beloved novelists.

  • Five minutes after being crowned Miss Blackpool 1964, Barbara Parker has ditched the tiara and is off to London to make her fortune. A chance encounter, a shrewd change of name and one audition later sees Sophie Straw with her own BBC comedy series - and there the trouble starts.

  • London GP Katie Carr always thought she was a good person. With her husband David making a living as 'The Angriest man n Holloway', she figured she could put up with anything. Until, that is, David meets DJ Goodnews and becomes a good person too.

  • Relationships, rock stars and last chances - the new bestseller by the author of High Fidelity.

  • Sam is sixteen and a skater. Just so there are no terrible misunderstandings: skating = skateboarding. There's no ice. Life is ticking along nicely for Sam: his mum's got rid of her rubbish boyfriend, he's thinking about college and he's met someone. Alicia.

  • This is not a book of reviews. This is not a book that sneers at other books. This is a book about reading - about enjoying books wherever and however you find them.

  • For disgraced TV presenter Martin Sharp the answer's pretty simple: he has, in his own words, 'pissed his life away'. And on New Year's Eve, he's going to end it all . . . But not, as it happens, alone.

  • Through thirty-one songs that he either loves or has loved, Nick Hornby tells us what music means to his life. Theses personal and passionate pieces – refreshingly free of pretension – are a celebration of the joy that certain songs have given him.

  • Too cool! At thirty-six, he's as hip as a teenager. He's single, child-free, goes to the right clubs and knows which trainers to wear.

  • In this hilarious, moving and now-classic book, he vividly depicts his childhood life, his time as a teacher, and his first loves (after football), all through the prism of the game, as he insightfully and brilliantly explores obsession, and the way it can shape a life.

  • Nick Hornby's internationally bestselling first novel, available as a Penguin Essential for the first time.
