Graham 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.
