NICK HORNBY'S JULIET, NAKED ATTRACTS HUGE MEDIA ATTENTION
Hornby's publishers, (Penguin in UK, Riverhead in US), must be elated with all the attention he and his latest book, Juliet, Naked, are receiving from print and radio media around the world right now. Every newspaper and magazine I read in print form or online seem to have a feature about him and the book or his latest film, An Education.
There was a lengthy piece by Janet Maslin in the New York Times over the weekend and with Hornby about to set off on a US tour I guess there will be lots more to come.
Closer to home there was a searching interview with Kim Hill on her Saturday show on Radio NZ National and the good news for those who missed it is that RNZ are repeating it this Saturday during their 6.00-7.00pm Great Encounters slot.
