Waiting on Wednesday

This meme is hosted by Breaking the Spine and is meant to highlight some great pre-publication books we all can't wait to get our grubby little mitts on.

Funny Girl by Nick Hornby. The book is being released by Plume on February 3, 2015.

Amazon says this about the book: From the bestselling author of High Fidelity, About a Boy, and A Long Way Down comes a highly anticipated new novel.

Set in 1960's London, Funny Girl is a lively account of the adventures of the intrepid young Sophie Straw as she navigates her transformation from provincial ingénue to television starlet amid a constellation of delightful characters. Insightful and humorous, Nick Hornby's latest does what he does best: endears us to a cast of characters who are funny if flawed, and forces us to examine ourselves in the process.

  1. I've never read anything by this author, though I liked the movie adaptation of ABout a Boy.

I love to hear what you think, especially so I know I'm not just whistling into the wind here at my computer.
