A Sunday Morning Respite in Tom and Lek's Garden

Although I've been distracted by adventures of the palate, I'm momentarily inspired to post an entry about Nick Hornby. I missed him when he was in Boston promoting A Long Way Down, his most recent novel, about four people, each intent on their mission to jump off a building on New Year's Eve. The story of how they emerge from their isolation and together form a no-suicide pact is both riveting and very funny, though some critics have declared this novel is Hornby's darkest yet.
