High Fidelity

by Nick Hornby

Category: Fiction / G - I
Publisher: Orion Publishing Co
Publication date: 25 April 1996
Number of pages: 256
Prizes: Winner of Writers' Guild Award 1995.

Description:
When Laura dumps Rob (on the very first page) he is aggrieved and exhilarated, 35 and petrified. Trying to work out what went wrong, obsessed with music, and running an ailing record shop, he sets out on the road to self-discovery. This is the first novel from the author of "Fever Pitch".

Review:
'My genius, if I can call it that, is to combine a whole load of averageness into one compact frame.' Rob Fleming, record shop owner, obsessed with pop music, compulsive list-maker (favourite American films; all-time top five favourite books; five most memorable split-ups...) finds himself in his 30s and going nowhere; even his (failed) romances seem to be a scrambled replay of his first rejection, by Alison Ashworth in 1972, at the age of 13. Nick Hornby was catapulted to media stardom with Fever Pitch, his hilarious, prize-winning account of a fan's obsession with football. There is no football in this novel, but fans may well find a kindred spirit in Rob, who narrates this funny, sad tale with intelligence, wit, and self-deprecation, plus the all-round sheer blokeishness that Hornby captures so well. (Kirkus UK)

Author's Biography:
Nick Hornby was born in 1957 and worked as a teacher before becoming a full time writer. He lives in north London.
