I really enjoyed this book and found it a page turner. For a first novel it was very skilfully written, what a versatile man Graham Norton is!
I did find there were some little niggles when I finished the book, possibly because I read it so quickly and so will be rereading it soon.
I can see this book as a film. Does Graham think it might happen?
I would also ask Graham which he prefers, acting, singing or writing very entertaining novels?
Well, I've sold the film and TV rights so let's see what happens. I think far more books are bought by production companies than ever make it to the big or small screen. At the moment a broadcaster has commissioned a script so if they like that and can find the right cast you might be seeing it in the Radio Times. I opted to have no involvement however, since script writing is a skill that I don't have and haven't much interest in acquiring!
Acting was my first love but it comes a distant third these days. Presenting is a job I really enjoy and it affords me the opportunity to do things like write novels. I loved writing Holding but maybe that was as a reaction to my day job. The chat show is all about collaborating. Before the show I work with a team of researchers and producers and on the night I rely on the guests to create a good show. Being an author is for the most part completely solitary and I really enjoyed that. I am aware though that if I was writing full time all that solitude might drive me slightly crazy!
