More Baths, Less Talking

Average Rating: 3.5 stars out of 5.
More Baths, Less Talking


Item Details

A new gathering of Nick Hornby's wildly popular Believer column, "Stuff I've Been Reading""Read what you enjoy, not what bores you," Nick Hornby tells us. That simple, liberating, and indispensable directive animates each installment of the celebrated critic and author's monthly column in the Believer. In this delightful and never-musty tour of his reading life, Hornby tells us not just what to read, but how to read.Whether tackling a dismayingly bulky biography of Dickens while his children destroy something in the next room, or getting sucked into a serious assessment of Celine Dion during an intensely fought soccer match featuring his beloved Arsenal, or devouring an entire series of children's books while on vacation, Hornby's reviews are rich, witty, and occasionally madcap. These essays capture the joy and ire, the despair and exhilaration of the book-lover's life, and will appeal equally to both monocle-wearing salonnieres and people, like him, who spend a lot of time thinking about Miley Cyrus's next role.

being a long time fan of nick hornby's writing I enjoyed this collection of writings about reading and how it was part of his days/life, the impact and influence. Though I find these type of books can be a little pretentious at times it can be a valuable source of interesting books that normally one would not be aware of.
