Synopsis:

Ending her relationship with a man who turns out to be in love with a reclusive singer, Annie initiates an e-mail friendship with the musician that reveals their mutual loneliness, his concerns about his young son, and his plans to release an acoustic version of his most successful album. By the E.M. Forster-winning author of About a Boy.


Review:

"Few can match the muted humor, lingering poignancy and depth with which Hornby...limns his forgivably human characters."

Kirkus, 08/01/2009

Review:

"Obviously, this is a must-read for Hornby's fans, but it also works as a surprisingly thoughtful complement to the piles of musician bios and memoirs." (starred review)

Book Description: Riverhead. 1 Cloth(s), 2009. hard. Book Condition: New. Shortlisted for the National Book Critics Circle Award and the Whitbread Novel Award for such books as 31 Songs and A Long Way Down, Nick Hornby returns to his roots with this tale of music, superfandom, and the truths and lies we tell ourselves. Annie loves Duncan, or thinks she does. Duncan loves Annie, but then, suddenly, he doesn't. Duncan really loves Tucker Crowe, a reclusive, Dylan-esque singer-songwriter who stopped making music ten years ago. Annie stops loving Duncan, and starts getting her own life. In doing so, she initiates an e-mail correspondence with Tucker, and a connection is forged between two lonely people. Tucker's been languishing (and he's unnervingly aware of it), living in rural Pennsylvania with what he sees as his one hope for redemption amid a life of emotional and artistic ruin—his young son, Jackson. But then there's also the new material he's about to release to the world: an acoustic, stripped-down version of his greatest album, Juliet, which he's calling Juliet, Naked. What happens when a washed-up musician looks for another chance? And miles away, a restless, childless woman looks for a change? "Through brisk dialogue and quick scene changes, Hornby highlights each character's misconceptions about his or her own life, and though Duncan, Annie and Tucker are consistently ridiculous and often self-destructive, they are portrayed with an extraordinary degree of sympathy. Tucker's status of Dylan by way of Salinger allows for an intriguing critique of celebrity fetishization and of the motives behind the eccentricity that comes along with fame. Obviously, this is a must-read for Hornby's fans, but it also works as a surprisingly thoughtful complement to the piles of musician bios and memoirs."—Publishers Weekly (starred review) 408.
