Nick Hornby's six 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:
Pictures at a Revolution by Mark Harris

Harris' brilliantly researched study of the five films nominated for the Best Picture Oscar in 1968, following a pivotal year in Hollywood history, is my favorite book about cinema. It's enormous fun to read but also extremely accomplished: Harris understands the collaborative and random nature of the business better than anyone else I've come across.
Read about the other books on Hornby's list.

Writers Read: Mark Harris.
