'Tuvalu ... Everyone has a place like that. A dream land or life they're working towards, however vaguely. ... Some people probably have more than one Tuvalu in a life. It changes as they grow. Or maybe they get to the first one and find it's nothing like they imagined and need a new one. You must have had at least one?''No.'A love story of sorts, Tuvalu tells the story of Noah Tuttle, who is glumly and aimlessly living a half kind of life in a cheap rundown hostel in the seamier margins of Tokyo, a place overrun with feral cats and cockroaches. He teaches mediocre English to disinterested students, sleeps with his girlfriend, Tilly, when she's around, drinks beer when he can afford it, and generally avoids other people and their expectations. Nothing much happens to him - until, that is, he meets the wealthy, captivating and completely self-absorbed Mami Kaketa, a supremely selfish creature who leaves people like so much litter in her wake, so brazen and capricious she should come with a health warning. A blackly funny, inconclusive and strangely beguiling story of ennui, escape, exile and dreams, Tuvalu is an offbeat and intriguing story. '.. a sense of intriguing disconnectedness in the mode of Soseki and Murakami... Always surprising, it maps the complex emotional currents of a young man navigating between two cultures, exploring issues of love, lust, honesty and commitment...' Liam Davison, author.

FEVER PITCH, winner of the William Hill Sports Book of the Year Award, stands as the definitive statement on the obsessive nature of football fandom.¿His triumph is that, without glossing over its large-scale stupidities and discomforts, he makes terrace life seem not just plausible but sometimes near-heroic in its single minded vehemence, its heart shaking highs and lows¿ Independent on SundayHIGH FIDELITY hilariously and movingly explains men to women ¿ and to themselves.¿It is rare that a book so hilarious is also so sharp about sex and manliness, memory and music. Many men ¿ and, certainly, all addictive personalities ¿ will find in these pages shadows of themselves. And most of us will hear, in Hornby¿s acoustic prose, the obsessive chords of the past that more often lock up than liberate our hearts¿ New Yorker ABOUT A BOY explores the connections people make when the so-called ideal family model does not apply. ¿An almost perfect book, hugely entertaining and on the side of the angels . . . About a Boy is laughter in the dark¿ The Times
