Shortlisted for the 2005 Whitbread Award and the Commonwealth Writers Prize, A Long Way Down by bestselling novelist Nick Hornby is a tragicomic exploration of four strangers linked by an embarrassing shared secret . . .

"In his fourth novel, New York Times-bestselling author Nick Hornby mines the hearts and psyches of four lost souls who connect just when they've reached the end of the line.

Meet Martin, JJ, Jess, and Maureen. Four people who come together on New Year's Eve: a former TV talk show host, a musician, a teenage girl, and a mother. Three are British, one is American. They encounter one another on the roof of Topper's House, a London destination famous as the last stop for those ready to end their lives.

In four distinct and riveting first-person voices, Nick Hornby tells the story of four individuals confronting the limits of choice, circumstance, and their own mortality.

Intense, hilarious, provocative, emotional, A Long Way Down is a novel that asks big questions: about life and death, strangers and friendship, love and pain, and what it takes to make it through a long, dark night of the soul."

'Hornby is a writer who dares to be witty, intelligent and emotionally generous all at once' - The New York Times Book Review

‘A page-turning plot and rich, funny characters with several big laughs on every page…Hornby’s best yet’ - Literary Review

‘Hornby’s best novel to date, impossible to put down…how can an examination of four people’s anguish be so enthralling?’ - Ruth Rendell, Guardian

‘Masterful. . . some of the finest writing, and some of the most outstanding characters I’ve ever had the pleasure of reading’ - Johnny Depp

333 pages.
