9780241965238: Funny Girl
Review:

Beautifully captures the thrill of youthful success and of discovering your own talent ( Daily Telegraph)

Funny Girl may be read as Hornby's latest defence of popular entertainment against high-culture elitism. Funny Girl makes his case for him eloquently and entertainingly ... both hugely enjoyable and deceptively artful ( Spectator)

I loved this hymn to the 1960s, their infinite creative possibilities ( Scotsman)

Vivid, sparky, a bit schmaltzy, and it rattles along ( Independent)

Endearing, humorous and touching. Hugely enjoyable ( Sunday Mirror)

From the Publisher:

Make them laugh and they're yours forever...It's the swinging 60s and the nation is mesmerized by Sophie Straw, a former Blackpool beauty queen turned prime-time sitcom star. Sophie is a comic genius and a bombshell to boot - she might just have it all. Behind the scenes of her smash-hit show, Sophie is falling madly in love - with comedy. Her cast and crew are eccentric, dysfunctional and utterly charming: foppish heartthrob Clive, Oxbridge-survivor Dennis, sarcastic scriptwriting duo Tony and Bill. Most importantly, every single one of her new friends is very, very funny. Together they will make TV history, find fame and fortune, and maybe even discover the secret of happiness. From the bestselling author of About a Boy comes a story about a girl. This is an exuberant, colourful snapshot of 1960s London, a city brimming with energy and optimism and possibility.
