What was supposed to be a bit of ordinary shuffle unravels into an emotional journey in time and some unexpected discoveries.He then secured a prime time slot on Channel 4 with his chat shows So Graham Norton and V Graham Norton . Living in America has left a void in Elizabeth as she tries to interact with her extended Irish family. I never watch talk shows, however I know who Mr Norton is, and I admit I was intrigued by the fact that he has accomplished two novels, both receiving many positive reviews. This is a hugely compelling family drama, of mothers whose children are everything, and of the darkness, heartbreak, intrigue, mental health issues and secrets that bubble within the facade of families, past and present.

He presents The Graham Norton Show on BBC1, a show on Virgin Radio every weekend, and is a judge on RuPaul's Drag Race UK. Known for his quick wit Graham began hosting a variety of talent shows on BBC One from Strictly Dance Fever and Andrew Lloyd Webber's How Do You Solve A Problem Like Maria? This compelling new novel confirms Graham Norton’s status as a fresh, literary voice, bringing his clear-eyed understanding of human nature and its darkest flaws.I was determined to finish it, although was proud of myself to see it out till the bitter end which,although sad, ended on a positive note. who knows what drives people to try to set things right ,and instead making it a kidnapping nightmare.

Elizabeth’s loneliness is ever present though never overplayed, and her difficult ties with her extended family oscillate between frustration, anger, regret and resignation.
