Nick Hornby is a British writer of both novels and nonfiction. His first two novels center on male protagonists who are in their 30s and are more or less lost and the books chronicle their efforts to become found. How to Be Good has a female protagonist and explores her crisis of meaning. All three books focus on figures who need to work out questions about how they want to be in the world. A Long Way Down follows a group of four characters in the time after they meet as they are all simultaneously about to jump off the same roof in London on New Year’s
