Overview

The #1 New York Times bestseller 

“Things had been ticking along quite nicely. My teachers suddenly started talking to me about going to college, my mum had ditched her rubbish boyfriend, and I had a gorgeous new girlfriend. You know that bit in a film when they show couples laughing and holding hands and kissing in lots of different places while a song plays? Alicia and I were like that, except we didn’t go to lots of different places. We went to about three, including Alicia’s bedroom. Anyway. It took years for everything to come together like that, and it took two seconds to screw it all up. One mistake and my life would never be the same.”

Nick Hornby’s poignant and witty novel Slam shows a rare and impressive understanding of human relationships and what it really means to grow up.

Praise

“With Sam, Hornby has given us another of his perfectly imperfect male characters… Sparkling.” —Chicago Sun-Times
 
“We want to hear whatever this kid has got to say—the whole scary, hilarious story.… Hornby just makes it look easy.” —The Washington Post
