Well its's not much really. In Nick Hornby's latest novel "How To Be Good" (which isn't by the way), the character David and his friend go into a diatribe of people they hate. Amongst the lengthy list, is the Smiths.
I don't really like Hornby. He's vastly overrated. I'm sure that the only males who read his books are those who have been given copies to them by girlfriends and partners in some vain hope that they'll start reading. Will Self is a much better London writer.
The book will problably get made into a movie starring Hugh Grant (again).
