Ten Years in the Tub - Nick Hornby

There’s good news and there’s bad news. The good news is that Ten Years in the Tub (McSweeney’s, $26), a comprehensive collection of Nick Hornby’s columns from The Believer magazine, is as smart as a tome of literary criticism, as personal as memoir, as readable as a novel, and as funny as a book of kitten photos. In each column Hornby chronicles the books he’s purchased, the books he read, the books he didn’t read, and the reasons for his choices. This archive of the screenwriter/lyricist/best-selling novelist’s reading life avoids self-important posturing in favor of examining the decision-making process and book-buried nightstand that every reader faces. The bad news is that Ten Years in the Tub is an enabler to book lovers, guaranteed to add dozens of new titles to its consumer’s “to read” list.
