Just found this while going through my chest of books. Yes this is Nick Hornby who wrote 'High Fidelity' also the screenplay for 'Brooklyn'.
  1. Songs are what I listen to, almost to the exclusion of everything else. I don't listen to classical music or jazz very often, and when people ask me what music I like, I find it very difficult to reply, because they usually want names of people, and I can only give them song titles.
