LA Reads

Today's LA Weekly has an interview with Nick Hornby about his latest book The Polysyllabic Spree:

Hornby writes about reading from the perspective of someone who has to balance the activity against his equally strong desire to do something else. In other words, he drops the novel into the marketplace and lets it fend for itself. (So, what’s it going to be tonight? Orhan Pamuk or The West Wing? Arsenal vs. Chelsea or Bob Dylan’s autobiography?)

Arsenal football or McSweeneys?....Arsenal.
