I just finished the Young Adult book by Nick Hornby called, “SLAM.” Wow, I forgot how good Nick Hornby was as a writer. I think the only book of his that I didn’t enjoy was “How to be Good,” and I wondered at the time if it was because it was written from a woman’s perspective and he is better at writing from the man’s perspective. It was just OK, rather than spectacular and brilliant. I really enjoyed “SLAM” – a story about a 15 year old boy who becomes a father. Heavy stuff. Funny stuff. Life changing stuff. Great stuff.
