Beschreibung

First Edition (First Printing).So Me is more interesting and insightful on the period of struggle before Graham Norton became famous than on a life which has become a constant round of professional encounters with celebrities. He is funny on his unsuccessful career as an actor and rather touching on the friendships that date back to the years he spent as a waiter. Under a surface of camp glibness, he is surprisingly evocative about the London of the 1980s--certain key locations of his life such as the restaurant where he worked or the slum high-rise where he lived are entirely present here. He is honest about his flaws and moving about friends who taught him to be better--for example, a commune where he lived for a year in San Francisco gets a tribute. His later life--his cult success as a comedian and his discovery that what he really was is a chat-show host--is recorded with occasional insight. 320pp. For more photos or information, use the «Ask Bookseller» button and I'll be pleased to help. The book is in stock and ships from the rustic nirvana of Peasedown St. John, near Bath, England from a long-established bookseller - guaranteed by my reputation and the UK Distance Selling Act.

Über diesen Titel

Inhaltsangabe:

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.

Anbieterinformationen

BookLovers of Bath is based in the rural idyll of Peasedown St. John in Somerset (God's Own Country) in the south west of England and actually very nearly in Bath. After 20 years of being “internet only” I have now opened a shop, Fact or Fable, in the premises of our now-closed Post Office. With over 20,000 books in stock and another 5,000 or so in the shop I run an old-fashioned book business with every book listed, graded, picked, packed and posted by my own fair hand… abetted by my Jack Russells who are really, not, helpful.
