Product description

Graham Norton, whose impish charm and quick wit has earned him a place in our hearts, looks back at his life so far. In his own words, SO ME is 'a real romp through a journey from living in a cockroach-infested council flat in Hackney to buying Claudia Schiffer's townhouse in Manhattan, from my mother dragging me to school to me dragging her to Sharon Stone's house for New Year's brunch'. From a not-so miserable Irish childhood to dropping out of Cork University and joining a commune of hippies in San Francisco, from his disastrous attempts at becoming a serious actor to the rise of his comedy career in London, this is a hilarious, insightful and moving account of a colourful life.

Author information

Born in 1963, Graham Norton was brought up in County Cork, Ireland. He first ventured into the world of comedy in the early 90s, and was nominated for the prized Perrier award in 1997, when he also appeared as Father Noel Furlong (the happiest, clappiest, campest priest) in 'Father Ted'. He then got his first TV break on Channel 5's 'Bring Me the Head of Light Entertainment'. In May 2000, he received the Bafta award for Best Entertainment performance for 'So Graham Norton'. His most recent chat show, 'V Graham Norton' was on 5 times a week with 3 million viewers a night. He is due to present a dance competition show in 2005 on BBC1.

Review quote

A frank, funny and sometimes tortured autobiography Andrew Billen, The Times Honest and entertaining ... he uses his quick wit and humour to amuse the reader from start to finish The Sun Frank and funny Mirror A jaunty romp with oodles of humour Hot Stars (OK) A hugely engaging account of his life that is written with the same breezy bravura that he exhibits on telly ... There are points in the book when I found myself laughing out loud, and others when I was unusually moved ... Celebrity memoirs are rarely as genuine or as generously candid Herald
