Nick Hornby's High Fidelity is the brilliant story of one
man's journey of self-discovery. When Rob - a thirty-five-year old
record shop owner and music obsessive - is dumped by Laura he indulges
in some casual sex, a little light stalking and some extreme
soul-searching in the form of contacting every ex-girlfriend who ever
broke his heart. An instant classic, High Fidelity is a
hilarious exploration of love, life, music and the modern male.
