Oh my gosh !
I started reading this book right after I had finished Philip Judge's memoir. As you might remember, I found Judge quite secretive about his life and even wondered at one point, why he even had bothered writing a memoir if he was not sharing any details or even names of people appearing in the book.
Well, Graham Norton's life as well as this book is another pair of shoes. Norton loves to share secrets, details and all about himself.
I had chosen this book because I recognised the author: Graham Norton, the presenter of The Graham Norton Show, but that was about all I knew about him.
What pleasant surprise thus when I learned about Graham Norton's passions which he was about to reveal in this book: dogs, booze, men, divas, Ireland, New York and work.
He concludes the introduction with the words: "In an ideal world you'd like dogs, booze, men, divas, Ireland, New York and work as much as I do but, most of all, I really hop you like this book." So, after only four pages, and assenting to six of the seven stated passions, I was excited to discover more.
It's an enjoyable and easy read, with thoughtful parts as well as funny ones. A candid, sincere and vivid insight into the author's life. I really loved to get to know Graham Norton through different interesting aspects that make out his life and himself. Graham Norton is an entertainer and so is this book: entertaining !
I'm not writing any more about it, as I don't wanna spoil the fun ! So get yourself a copy of 'The Life and Loves of a He Devil' and find out some of the nasty little secrets Graham Norton wants to share. 😉
