What novelists do when they're not writing novels...

Nick Hornby moonlights as a lyricist and sometime alternative-folk-meets-deadpan-poetry-slamming-performance-artist, apparently. Check out this collaboration between Hornby, Ben Folds and Pomplamoose, one of the songs from an album they've recorded, Lonely Avenue, due for release later this month.
The song is called Things You Think and here's a grab from the musical quill of Mr Hornby himself:
'Did you know that Dickens invented 13,000 characters? 13,000! That's a character a day for the whole of his working life. What have I done today?...'
I like it. It's kinda catchy, have a listen.
