The Tortoise Interview: Nick Hornby

The Tortoise Interview: Nick Hornby

This event is exclusive to Friends of Tortoise

This is a newsroom ThinkIn. In-person and digital-only tickets are available.

What has Charles Dickens got to do with Prince? More than you might imagine, believes Nick Hornby. Join us in the newsroom or online for an evening with the much-loved author of Fever Pitch and About A Boy to enthuse about and wonder at the genius of two wildly different artists. Hornby’s new book traces the similarities in their stories and their art, asking where did their magic come from? How did they work so hard and produce so much? How did they manage or give in to the restlessness and intensity of their creativity? How did they use it, and did it kill them?
