Through the success of his novels About A Boy, High Fidelity and Fever Pitch, author Nick Hornby has garnered a reputation as a passionate music connoisseur. Hornby’s latest work, Songbook, features essays about 31 of his favorite songs. Ani’s “You Had Time” is one of them, along with selections from Aimee Mann, Bob Dylan, The Beatles and many others. In the U.S., the book is accompanied by a CD that contains “You Had Time,” along with 10 other tracks that are featured in the essays.
Proceeds from Songbook will benefit The TreeHouse Trust, a U.K. charity that helps to educate children with autism and related communication disorders, and 826 Valencia, a non-profit writing lab based in San Francisco.
