From the New York Times bestselling author—the shooting script to his award-winning film, with an original Introduction and vivid stills from the movie.

Jenny is a 16-year-old girl stifled by the tedium of adolescence; she can’t wait for her sophisticated adult life to begin. One rainy day her suburban existence is upended by the arrival of David, a much older suitor who introduces her to a glittering new world of concerts, art, smoky bars, urban nightlife, and his glamorous friends, replacing her traditional education with his own version. It could be her awakening—or her undoing. This edition of Hornby’s adapted screenplay, which includes stills from the film, is a perfect accompaniment to the highly anticipated movie, which stars Carey Mulligan as Jenny, Peter Sarsgaard, Emma Thompson, Dominic Cooper, and Alfred Molina. It is a must-have for fans of Hornby’s novels, featuring his signature pitch-perfect dialogue, mordant wit, and the resonant humanity of his writing.

Review: An Education

User Review  - David Allen - Goodreads

Hornby's screenplay appears identical to the very good movie, without the visuals of course but with a few cute moments in the descriptions. The introduction and Sundance diary, written with the same casual wit as his Believer columns, are a bonus. Read full review

Review: An Education

User Review  - Gabriella Kunze - Goodreads

The book got me interested from beginning to end, although I felt quite disgusted by the romance between David and Jenny, due to the fact that she is a lot younger. Moreover, he is manipulative towards the girl. Anyway, it´s worth reading. Read full review
