Juliet, Naked by Nick Hornby

In Juliet, Naked, Duncan, a middle-aged Englishman, is obsessed with anything related to reclusive musician Tucker Crowe. Duncan runs a web site for other Crowologists where they incessantly deconstruct every piece of Tucker Crowe minutiae. Duncan's long-suffering girlfriend, Annie, doesn't share his obsession. When Crowe finally releases a new album, "Juliet, Naked," which has acoustic versions of the songs from his famous album, it drives Duncan and Annie apart. An e-mail from Crowe to Annie offers a potential new path for her boring life. Nick Hornby's novel has received mixed reviews with The Independent saying, "Juliet, Naked has only a bare plot, and the most tentative of romances, but it is about feelings being reawakened, small lives being expanded, and the function that art can play in the process. It is only gently comic, but subtle and insightful, and really quite touching."
