Nick Hornby's 6 favorite books

Nick Hornby's novels include High Fidelity, About A Boy, and Fever Pitch.

One of his six favorite books, as told to The Week magazine:
Random Family by Adrian Nicole LeBlanc

Random Family follows two young Bronx, N.Y., women as they struggle over a decade with men, kids, drugs, poverty, and, very occasionally, money. It's an astonishing, and astonishingly patient, piece of reportage; it's also an important book about contemporary America, and it grips like a thriller.
