Hugely entertaining and refreshingly honest, So Me is the memoir everybody has been waiting for. Graham Norton, whose impish charm and quick wit has earned him a place in our hearts, looks back at his life so far, a personal journey that begins in a remote village in Ireland forty years ago. Packed with anecdotes about his time at Cork University before dropping out and joining a commune of hippies in San Francisco, about his disastrous attempts at becoming a serious actor and about the rise of his comedy career in London, this is a hilarious, insightful and at times moving account of a very colourful life. As Norton puts it himself, 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". Containing Graham Norton's trademark stamp of surreal humour and wry observation, So Me is a treat for all of the presenter's millions of fans.

About the Author:

Born in 1963, Graham Norton was brought up in County Cork, Ireland. His family was Protestant in a 98% Catholic area - his father was a Guinness representative and his mother a leading member of the Mother's Union. He dropped out after a year of studying at University College in Cork, went to San Francisco where he was briefly engaged and then moved to London to join the Central School of Speech and Drama and, until his late 20s, worked as a waiter and a barman. Graham 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 current chat show, 'Very Graham Norton' is on 5 times a week and pulls in 3 million viewers every night.

Review:

'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 20040827 'A frank, funny and sometimes tortured autobiography' -- Andrew Billen, The Times 20040827 'Frank and funny' -- Mirror 20040827 'Honest and entertaining ... he uses his quick wit and humour to amuse the reader from start to finish' -- The Sun 20040910 'A jaunty romp with oodles of humour' -- Hot Stars (OK) 20040910
