Nick Hornby, circa 2015.

Nick Hornby (born 1957-04-17) is an English author and film writer. His fiction writing is mostly about real world people and their relationships, but he occasionally introduces minor supernatural elements.


I learned about Nick Hornby after enjoying the film High Fidelity. Afterward, I bought, read, and loved the book. I've since read several other books by Hornby, and I've enjoyed them all, making him one of my favorite authors; though I've only read his fiction. Hornby's writing style is very enjoyable, and reading his work makes me feel happy. He sometimes talks about dark subjects, but he doesn't make me depressed, and his stories have fulfilling endings.
