British author Nick Hornby is still struggling to come to terms with the fact his book High Fidelity wasn't a Broadway smash - because he thought it was a great musical.
The stage version of his book, which was also turned into a film starring John Cusack and Jack Black, failed to find an audience in New York and was cancelled and Hornby can't understand why the critics panned it.
He tells WENN, "I was very sad that it didn't succeed. They were very talented people and they did a really good job.
"It was one of those awful stories where I thought everyone was great and I went to the first night, which was wonderful, had a great party and then the New York Times review came in and it was over and that was it."
