In one of his recent "Stuff I've Been Reading" reviews in The Believer, Nick Hornby writes that the writer of an autobiography is writing for his fans; the writer of a memoir is writing to create new ones. By his level of fame then, we can conclude that these very personal first-personal reviews are written for his legion of UK and US fans. But wait! Enjoyment of this new collection of his Believer essays requires absolutely no previous history with its robust, eccentric author. Whether Hornby is ruminating about Patti Smith, Charles Dickens, Elizabeth Bishop, John Updike, or the World Cup, he communicates his passion and often surprising insights with a winning informality.
