Graham Norton

graham-norton-author-shotGraham Norton is a skilled storyteller and has created a taught and perfectly paced narrative, a fully-realised setting, and characters whose secrets, dreams and heartbreaks come fully to life. In Holding he weaves black humour, and emotional clout to create a surprising, compelling and gripping novel. This is a debut that heralds a bold new voice in the fiction market.

Graham Norton is one of the UK’s most treasured comedians and presenters. Born in Clondalkin, a suburb of Dublin, Norton’s first big TV appearance was as Father Noel Furlong on Channel 4’s Father Ted in the early 1990s. He then secured a prime time slot on Channel 4 with his chat shows So Graham Norton and V Graham Norton.

Graham Norton has won 7 BAFTAs for Best Entertainment Performance, and Best Entertainment Programme. He presents a show on BBC Radio 2 every Saturday and also writes, as Agony Aunt, weekly in a column for The Telegraph.

Holding is Graham’s debut novel.
