You Are Here by Steve Horsfall
on 10 August 2004
It can be a bit of a gamble forking out on something by an unknown author but it definitely paid off with 'You Are Here'.
I have no idea how the writer will favour direct comparisons to already established colleagues but the best way I can think of describing his book is to say it reminds me of Nick Hornby, and to a lesser degree, William Boyd. The former because of the use of easy to identify with references to recent history and the musical theme, the latter for the insights into the male psyche that few others manage to convey so perceptively.
In summary, You Are Here is a cracking read - every bit as compelling as 'High Fidelity' or 'A Good Man in Africa'. Essential fare for that Meditteranean holiday - either take it with you to read by the pool or let the book take you there.
