So, prior to this Nick Hornby, male-British-writer-God, and I had met just once before, in High Fidelity. Actually, I guess we had met one other time, on the silver screen, in the movie version of About a Boy. With its excellent writing and talented cast, it was a movie that I loved and rewatched probably a half a dozen times. The lexicon of the movie has made its way into my everyday life. But I never even thought about reading the book until my book club selected it.
