I love Hornby too. And I forgot this was even third person, his stuff always feels first person.

I wonder, if, reading it now, all the Nirvana stuff dates it, or if it makes it feel more classic. At the time, I thought, this guy just loves Nirvana a little too much.


I just realized, after reading some parts of that book MULTIPLE times, that Nirvana might be an ironic pun: this guy is so shallow, he confuses spiritual enlightenment with a band from Seattle.

Oh, THAT would be really clever. Okay, might be a pun. So you're not sure? Let me know if you find out. I'm sort of interested.
