We’re less than three weeks away until the release of Nick’s long-awaited new novel Funny Girl in the UK, with the American edition set to debut next year.

The US cover was launched this week by Entertainment Weekly, who featured a brief interview about the book with Nick:

Q: What made you want to write about funny ladies?

NH: Lots of things…A biography of Lucille Ball that I read probably started it. And working with Rosamund Pike on An Education started me thinking about women who don’t want to do the conventional thing with their beauty.
