April book club for grown ups
by Nick Hornby
Set in 1960’s London, Funny Girl is a lively account of the adventures of the intrepid young Sophie Straw as she navigates her transformation from provincial ingénue to television starlet amid a constellation of delightful characters. Insightful and humorous, Nick Hornby’s latest does what he does best: endears us to a cast of characters who are funny if flawed, and forces us to examine ourselves in the process.
“A smart comic novel that… induces binge-reading that’s the literary equivalent of polishing off an entire television series in one weekend.” —NPR
