“It struck him that how you spent Christmas was a message to the world about where you were in life, some indication of how deep a hole you had managed to burrow for yourself.”

Nick Hornby, About a Boy

Hornby was born in 1957 and published his first novel at age 38.

What a beautifully written book. On my list of to-read-agains.
