A show, a gold medal and a book for Graham

Graham Norton

WEST Cork ‘s Graham Norton is having a great autumn, it seems.

The Bandon presenter’s BBC chatshow returns this weekend just as his new novel is about to hit the shops.

And his branded Prosecco has been awarded a gold medal at the Melbourne International Wine Competition.

Graham’s ‘GN’ wines are produced by New Zealand’s Invivo Wines and are available in Ireland through SuperValu.

The Prosecco will be available exclusively in SuperValu from late October 2018, priced €12, and on offer in the run-up to Christmas at €10 a bottle.The wines are also served on Qantas Business Class.

While the success of his wines continues, his second novel, A Keeper, looks set to follow in the footsteps of his hugely popular debut, Holding.

This week The Guardian newspaper described the new book as ‘a gripping, thoughtful tale about the search for identity, belonging and self-possession’.

Meanwhile, the London Times said it was ‘an engrossing slice of Irish gothic’. It is published by Hodder and Stoughton and available from October 4th.
