Nick Hornby is by far my favorite author. High Fidelity is both my favorite book and one of my favorite movies. In fact, they're a couple of my favorite things in general. Thanks for having him on, Jesse!

Great interview. He's still my favorite writer...but unfortunately I'm a Chelsea fan, hehe.

I don't consider the fact

I don't consider the fact that he can't write Chelsea as he had many books written in this language!

I love his writing style!
