Funny Girl

By Nick Hornby

This story is set in the 1960’s about a girl from Blackpool England who dreams about becoming a comedic actor. 

While I don't think that this is one of Hornby's best work - I felt disconnected from the protagonist, especially since the book jumps back and forth to different characters. I did enjoyed reading about London in the 1960’s and the book addresses the challenges of a women trying to break into comedy - still a relevant topic today.
