Nick Hornby was born in 1957. He is the author of FEVER PITCH and of three novels: HIGH FIDELITY, ABOUT A BOY, and HOW TO BE GOOD. All four books have been international bestsellers. He also edited the collection of short stories SPEAKING WITH THE ANGEL and the anthology MY FAVOURITE YEAR. He is the pop music critic for the NEW YORKER.
In 1999 Hornby was awarded the E.M.FORSTER award by the American Academy of Arts and Letters. He is a graduate of Cambridge University and was a teacher before turning to writing full time. Before turning his attention to fiction, Hornby was a regular contributor to ESQUIRE, the LONDON SUNDAY TIMES, and the INDEPENDENT. He has also written for GQ, ELLE, TIME, THE NEW REPUBLIC, VOUGE, as well as PREMIERE.
Two of Nick Hornby’s previous books were number-one bestsellers in England: his first book, the memoir FEVER PITCH and the 1995 novel HIGH FIDELITY, a critic’s favourite on both sides of he Atlantic. DISNEY’S TOUCHSTONE PICTURES bought film rights for HIGH FIDELITY, and the major motion picture starring John Cusack was a hit both in the U.S. and abroad. CHANNEL FOUR FILMS released a film version of FEVER PITCH with a screenplay by Hornby, in England. ROBERT DE NIRO’S TRIBECA FILMS and NEW LINE recently paid $3000000 for the screen rights to ABOUT A BOY.
Nick Hornby lives and works in Highbury, North London, within walking distance of his favourite football (soccer to us Yanks) team, the Arsenal.
