Nick Hornby on His New Novel, 'A Long Way Down'

Fresh Air from WHYY, June 15, 2005 · The latest novel from best-selling English author Nick Hornby, A Long Way Down, focuses on a group of suicidal people who accidentally meet atop a tall building -- and how that meeting changes their fates. He also writes "Stuff I've Been Reading," a column for The Believer magazine. Many of Hornby's novels have been made into films, including About a Boy, High Fidelity and Fever Pitch.
And this, only a couple of weeks after I purchased and made my way through most of Songbook, Hornby's collection of essays about pop music that's affected him. And, while I'm still quite content to live within my own (quite hypocritical) anti-pop snobbery, I can't argue with the following statement:
You're either for music or you're against it, and being for it means embracing anyone who's any good.
Can you?
