Nick Hornby returns to his roots - music and messy relationships - in this funny and touching new novel which thoughtfully and sympathetically looks at how lives can be wasted but how they are never beyond redemption. Annie lives in a dull town on England's bleak east coast and is in a relationship with Duncan which mirrors the place; Tucker was once a brilliant songwriter and performer, who's gone into seclusion in rural America - or at least that's what his fans think. Duncan is obsessed with Tucker's work, to the point of derangement, and when Annie dares to go public on her dislike of his latest album, there are quite unexpected, life-changing consequences for all three. Nick Hornby uses this intriguing canvas to explore why it is we so often let the early promise of relationships, ambition and indeed life evaporate. And he comes to some surprisingly optimistic conclusions. (Large Print Edition)

Still, there are som...

4.0 Ridiculously well said. Again.
I didn’t know, not right from the start anyway, that Juliet, Naked would be about impossible / “can't live with or without” relationships in the context of a perpetual teenage mentality, where your favourite songwriter’s preferred.. I don’t know.. ice cream flavour matters, even though you're over 3...
