GRAHAM Norton is getting ready to reveal his debut novel, ‘Holding’.

The BBC TV presenter, who is spending much of the summer at his home at Ahakista on Sheep’s Head, tweeted recently that he had received the proofs of the book. His publisher, Hodder & Stoughton, has described the book as being set in a small town ‘with big secrets’, saying it weaves black humour with ‘brilliantly observed’ characters.

The town’s name is called ‘Duneen’ and residents include a policeman, PJ, who lives a ‘lonely, uneventful life’ – until now, that is!

Graham has previously said that he always wanted to write a novel, and he has already penned successful two biographies – So Me in 2004 and the hugely popular The Life and Loves of a He-Devil in 2014.The book is due to be published on October 6th. Last Friday he once again hosted the Ahakista festival quiz.
