Nick Hornby
British writer Nick Hornby made his debut in 1992 with the autobiographical "Fever Pitch," a chronicle of his adventures as an obsessed fan of the Arsenal Football Club. Since then, Hornby has written four other books of nonfiction, as well as numerous articles and critical pieces, and seven novels, including "High Fidelity" and "About a Boy" -- both made into major motion pictures. Hornby wrote the screenplay for the widely acclaimed 2009 film, "An Education." He also wrote the screenplay for the forthcoming film "Wild," based on Cheryl Strayed's bestselling memoir. His newest novel is "Funny Girl," a story of two women in comedy in the '60s. In "Stuff I've Been Reading," his decade-long column in The Believer magazine, Hornby writes about books he has bought and read throughout the month, guided by the mantra "Read what you enjoy, not what bores you." Hornby appears in conversation with Vendela Vida.
