A Long Way Down : the international bestseller Paperback / softback

Description

'Extremely funny . . . and wise' Sunday TimesNOW A MAJOR MOTION PICTURE__________________________'Can I explain why I wanted to jump off the top of a tower block?'For disgraced TV presenter Martin Sharp the answer's pretty simple: he has, in his own words, 'pissed his life away'. And on New Year's Eve he's going to end it all . . . but not, as it happens, alone. Because first single-mum Maureen, then eighteen-year-old Jess and lastly American rock-god JJ turn up and crash Martin's private party.

They've stolen his idea - but brought their own reasons. Yet it's hard to jump when you've got an audience queuing impatiently behind you.

A few heated words and some slices if cold pizza later and these four strangers are suddenly allies.

But is their unlikely friendship a good enough reason to carry on living?Shortlisted for the 2005 Whitbread Award and the Commonwealth Writers Prize, A Long Way Down is a darkly hilarious and moving novel by bestselling author Nick Hornby. __________________________'Hornby's best yet' Literary Review'Impossible to put down' Ruth Rendell, Guardian'Some of the finest writing I've ever had the pleasure of reading' Johnny Depp
