Juliet Naked

Author(s): Nick Hornby

General Fiction

Annie Duncan fit together naturally, like jigsaw pieces, though Duncan's passionate obsession with Tucker Crowe, the reclusive, tortured-genius songwriter, has never left much time for anything more meaningful, like marriage or kids. In fact, Annie's starting to wonder whether she's wasted fifteen years on a bad relationship. When Tucker's record company suddenly issue a stripped-down version of his most famous album, and Annie just can't see what's good about it, Duncan finds solace in bed with somebody else - and Annie is at last liberated to throw him out. But worse is to follow for Duncan: Annie is not alone in her opinion. After she posts a review on a fan website, she gets a response from a completely unlikely source, Tucker himself. The correspondence which follows is doubly satisfying: it turns out that not only is Tucker an expert like her on years of wasted life, but she begins to realize what lies behind his long silence.
