31 Songs is best-selling author Nicky Hornby's ultimate desert island disks.

Through thirty-one songs that he either loves or has loved, Nick Hornby tells us what music means to his life. These personal and passionate pieces - refreshingly free of pretension - are a celebration of the joy that certain songs have given him.

Together with additional writings on music from his column in the new Yorker - seen in the UK for the first time - 31 Songs is for Hornby what many of us have always wanted: a soundtrack to accompany life.

Winner of The National Book Critics Circle award, this funny and touchingly personal book, from the author of the million-copy number one bestseller About A Boy, is a must for music fans everywhere.

'Original, well written and wholly lacking in pretension . . . as good a book about pop music as I have read in many years and the most accomplished of Hornby's books so far' - Spectator.

'Funny, provocative, immensely readable. It is not simply about music . . . it is about Hornby, and us, and about being alive. His enthusiasm is such that he makes me want to be a better listener - and I can offer no better compliment. A triumph' - Tim Lott, Evening Standard.

'Refreshing, candid, very moving. Reminds you why you loved music before you knew enough to explain your love away' - Uncut.
