How to be Good

by Nick Hornby

Very funny - I wanted to keep reading bits out to people - even strangers on the bus! But also a very sympathetic view of people trying to be 'good'; and of the breakdown of a marriage.


I am in a car park in Leeds when I tell my husband I don't want to be married to him any more. David isn't even in the car park with me. He's at home, looking after the kids, and I have only called him to remind him that he should write a note for Molly's class teacher. The other bit just sort of ... slips out.
