Publisher's Summary

Katie Carr believes she is a good person. With a capital G. She is a doctor, after all. Besides, her husband David is Holloway's Angriest Man. Which is another reason why she can justify lying in bed with Stephen.

When David becomes good, really good, as in Feed the World and Give the Homeless Our Spare Room good, as opposed to his wife's Feed the Family and Buy a Big Issue good, Katie has some serious thinking to do. Nick Hornby's brilliant new novel offers a painfully funny account of modern marriage and parenthood and asks the question: what does it mean to be good?

    "Not recommended"

    This is one of those titles that keeps you reading / listening in the hope that eventually something might make sense and an intriguing story may unfold. Sadly it never does and leaves you wishing you had washed your hair instead.

    "I’d definitely recommend this wonderful read!"

    I like all of Nick Hornby’s books for his extraordinary insight into the machinations of the society we leave in as well as into our souls. It looks like he invented this new device thanks to which you can see close and far at the same time, inside and outside, micro and macro scales. He makes me laugh out loud, he makes me giggle, he makes me nod my head in agreement as well as shook it in disbelieve...but most of all, he makes me think, reflect, notice, care. Hornby is a professional indifference killer! I like the thought that he talks about the reality I see around me at this precise moment. “How to be good” is all what the author stands for and more. Simultaneously light and heavy, fun and serous. Important. Betty from New Malden, UK
