Description

Unmistakably of-the-moment. Sharp, charming and upbeat

Unmistakably of-the-moment. Sharp, charming and upbeat

Well-told, thoughtful, tender and occasionally devastatingly funny love story

A charming - and sharp - love story about what it means to fall for someone who is your polar opposite

Frequently funny, consistently engaging ... it has great warmth in its heart

Hornby's hilarious and heart-wrenching new novel explores what it means to be somebody's perfect match, and why this notion of perfect compatibility is an absolute disaster when it comes to love

The capable crackle of his dialogue - honed by a string of successful screenwriting projects - propels the domestic drama forward at an easy pace, particularly effective in the voices of the children

The novel explores division and racism and has its share of sharp observations that help illuminate what it means to fall headlong in love with someone who is nothing like you at all

Nick Hornby writes so well about his characters . . . his most enjoyable book for some years

Hornby has always been a first-rate storyteller and Just Like You - just perfectly put together - sparkles with tip-top dialogue and pin-sharp comic timing

Truly funny . . . the novel gallops straight into something that is immensely readable, sharp-eyed and at times hilarious

A brilliant read full of his trademark wit and ability to get to the heart of human nature

Comedy for our times

Excellent

Tender and timely

Set in 2016 against the strident backdrop of the Brexit vote, Nick Hornby's warmhearted comedy chronicles the love story between a middle-aged white woman and a young black man, suggesting that difference needn't always be divisive: sometimes it can bring us together

Hornby's prose is artful and effortless, his spiky wit as razored as a number-two cut

Hornby writes with a funny, fresh voice which skewers male and female foibles with hilarious accuracy

A fine writer, swift and pointed, with a lighter, more mischievous heart than he lets on, and more sympathy for the devil than he admits to

Dares to be witty, intelligent and emotionally generous at once

NICK HORNBY is the bestselling author of eight novels, including Just Like You, High Fidelity and About a Boy, and several works of nonfiction including Fever Pitch. He has also written numerous award-winning screenplays for film and television including Brooklyn, Wild and, most recently, State of the Union.
