Nick Hornby releases his latest novel, Juliet, Naked, on September 29. The standard Hornby ingredients are there, with a reclusive one-hit-wonder (or in this case, a one-album-wonder) raising a son, looking for love, and listening to pop music. High Fidelity meets About a Boy? Probably not. Writing what you know is the first rule or writing, or so they say. No matter how many times Hornby writes about himself, or at least his perspective, the story is always satisfying, funny and touching. Here Hornby talks about the autobiographical elements in his new novel.
