Publikace: Funny Girl - Nick Hornby. Funny Girl - the much-anticipated new novel by Nick Hornby, the

million-copy bestselling author of About a Boy

Make them laugh, and they're yours forever . . .

It's the swinging 60s and the nation is mesmerized by unlikely

comedy star Sophie Straw, the former Blackpool beauty queen who

just wants to make people laugh, like her heroine Lucille Ball.

Behind the scenes, the cast and crew are having the time of their

lives. But when the script begins to get a bit too close to home,

and life starts imitating art, they all face a choice.

The writers, Tony and Bill, comedy obsessives, each harbour a

secret. The Oxbridge-educated director, Dennis, loves his job but

hates his marriage. The male star Clive, feels he's destined for

better things. And Sophie Straw, who's changed her name and

abandoned her old life, must decide whether to keep going, or

change the channel.

Nick Hornby's new novel is about popular culture, youth and old

age, fame, class and teamwork. It offers a wonderfully captivating

portrait of youthful exuberance and creativity, and of a period

when both were suddenly allowed to flourish. Fans of Hornby will

love this book, as will readers of David Nicholls, Mark Haddon and

William Boyd.

Nick Hornby is the author of five bestselling novels (High

Fidelity, About a Boy, How To Be Good, A Long Way Down and Juliet,

Naked), a novel for young adults, Slam, and four works of acclaimed

non-fiction: Fever Pitch, 31 Songs, The Complete Polysyllabic Spree

and Stuff I've Been Reading. A Long Way Down, About a Boy, High

Fidelity and Fever Pitch have all been made into major films. He

also wrote the screenplay for the Oscar-nominated An Education, and

is currently writing screenplays for Cheryl Strayed's Wild,

starring Reese Witherspoon, and Colm Toibin's Brooklyn. Publikace: Funny Girl - Nick Hornby. Funny Girl - Nick Hornby. Tend to agree with the posters who have said that this is a mediocre book, uninspiring and not a great read. I found it hard going. I usually like his material but I found it difficult to sustain my concentration and interest. It's the story of the rise and fall of an innocent beauty queen from the north of England who goes to live in London in search of fame & fortune. Punctuated with mention of famous individuals from the sixties (and b/w pictures) - she actually meets Harold Wilson, for example - there is something of nostalgic interest but somehow it doesn't hang together for me. I guess I'm in the minority here but I found it quite a boring and disappointing read. Many pages are taken up by the scriptwriters discussing their next move for Barbara and there are odd moments of hilarity and amusement but they are too few and far between. It didn't maintain it's pace for me and I would not recommend it.
