Celebrated contemporary artists, Nick Hornby and Oliver Beer, joined us online for a conversation about art in the time of Covid-19, through the lens of their recent solo shows, Beer’s ‘Oma’ at Galerie Thaddaeus Ropac London (Sep-Oct 2020) and Hornby’s ‘Zygotes and Confessions’ at MOSTYN (showing until 18th April, 2021).Nick Hornby is a sculptor known for large works in bronze, marble and steel described as ‘often imposing, mind-bending and futuristic-looking’, while Oliver Beer works with sculpture, performance and film. Though they may appear to have little in common, both artists engage with slicing, impregnated meaning and translations of form. Last summer they co-curated an original exhibition mixing recent graduates with established artists in a vast warehouse in Soho, currently serving as Beer’s studio.
Wanted Podcast #32 // Nick Hornby „magyar hangja”: M. Nagy Miklós
Sznobokat bosszantani jó, vallja az alacsony, kopaszodó, nagyfülű angol, aki az Arsenalnak szurkol. Nick Hornbyról beszélünk, nyilván. De persze léteznek Chelsea-drukker nagyfülűek is, derül ki az M. Nagy Miklóssal, Hornby állandó magyar fordítójával, nem mellesleg a Helikon Kiadó főszerkesztőjével folytatott beszélgetésünkből. Szó esik még Esterházy Péterről, a Vásárvárosok Kupájáról, a kispályás irodalomról és arról, hogy van-e Isten a popdalokban? Ja, és csajozási tippeket is kaphatunk, igaz, csak másodkézből.

Eine weiße Lehrerin und ein schwarzer Aushilfsmetzger verlieben sich ineinander. Was sie trennt, sind ihr Status, ihr Alter – und ihre Haltung zum Brexit: Nick Hornbys Roman „Just Like You“ ist eine unterhaltsame Geschichte aus der englischen Gegenwart.Rezension von Christoph Schröder.Aus dem Englischen von Stephan KleinerVerlag Kiepenheuer & Witsch, Köln 2020, 382 Seiten, 22,- EuroISBN 978-3-462-00039-9
Here’s my review of my recent read, Just Like You, in which a much older woman starts dating a younger man and they both find something they never thought they would in one another. It’s an unconventional love story and worth talking about.
In this book club podcast Róisín, Ann Ingle, Bernice Harrison and Niamh Towey discuss our latest read, Nick Hornby’s ninth novel, Just Like You. The author, known for his portrayal of the interior lives of men in books including the much loved, High Fidelity, is back with a funny age-gap love story set to a backdrop of Brexit London. In it, Hornby attempts to inhabit the point of view of a black man in his 20s and a woman in her 40s, with excursions into football and music.Does he successfully embody the lives of the two protagonists? In the era of Black Lives Matter, has the author managed to handle the issue of race appropriately? And, how does Brexit work as a literary device? As usual there were some strong opinions among our book clubbers, minor disagreements and even a slightly uncomfortable exploration of a hypothetical age-gap love story involving two of our panelists. We’ll have details of our upcoming Christmas book club meeting in a later episode and on our social media channels.
