Bei diesem Buch handelt es sich um eine Kurzgeschichtensammlung von Nick Hornby. Es sind die Geschichten Not a Star, Small Country, Otherwise Pandemonium und NippleJesus enthalten, die extra für die deutsche Ausgabe ausgewählt wurden.

This collection of shorts stories was called something else when it first came out and was part of a charity contest to name it. I guess "Small Country" won.

That said, only the Neil Gaiman short is any good (it's awesome). The rest are either dull, boring, or pointless.
Als Hornby-Fan ist das leider nicht so doll. Naja, schade. Ich finde es natürlich vom Verlag ein wenig kalt und berechnend, 4 Stories, eine davon gut bekannt, noch mal als eigenständiges und nicht gerade günstiges Buch zu verkaufen. Gut, dass es Bibliotheken gibt.

Bizarre, comical - wonderful
Four short stories by Nick Hornby.

Would recommend this to his fans and people who like British black comedy.

Just don't expect the same thing as in his novels. For me, only two out of three stories stood out.
