Publisher's Summary

Graham Norton has been entertaining audiences and having fun with some of the world's biggest stars for nearly 20 years. He is loved across the nation for his delight in the peculiar and for his ability to find humour and a common ground in all that life brings.

The Life and Loves of a He Devil is Graham's funny and honest memoir on the theme of love. As he shows, it's really the things you love that make you who you are and so Graham tells his story from his Irish childhood to the present day, describing just what and who he loved - and sometimes lost - as a young boy, and his new loves and obsessions - big and small - as he's grown older. It's been 10 years since his last book and being a decade older Graham has come to realise that what makes a life interesting is less what happens to you and more what inspires and drives you, what you love.... From Dolly Parton and dogs to wine and Ireland, Graham tells of his life and loves with characteristic humour and outrageous candour.

    "Light frothy fun"

    This was a fun listen, bawdy at times, honest and personal. I enjoyed it but I was already a fan.

    Any additional comments?

    I knew nothing of Mr. Norton before this book but he is now one of my YouTube staples. I wish American talk shows would try his format of having all the guests out together the whole time. I enjoy seeing different celebrities interact. Maybe they just don't have Norton's degree of skill at hosting. He seems like he would throw the best parties. He's hilarious & I wish audible had his first memoir available as well.

    Very easy and funny book. Also read really well by Graham himself. The book's length is perfect. Not too long. It was a perfect and entertaining listen for my hours on the road.

    "Somewhat repetitive"

    As much as I love his shows I found this book a tad long. He repeats stories about his dog and Christian for example. Could have been edited better.

    "Funny charming "

    Love Graham Norton. He's funny and charming and just the right amount of self-deprecating that isn't over the top. He doesn't take himself too seriously and our dogs couldn't be more similar in temperament. Found myself chuckling at my desk many times.

    "This book was awful."

    This is the most boring read ever! The author read it and it was hard to understand what he was saying. I didn't find it the least bit Interesting. Wish I never bought it. It sucked big time.

    "Wise and Silly"

    Thanks Graham Norton for time well spent listening to your book. And thanks for reminding me that life is a "come as you are affair." I am also a big fan of your show and am glad you thought the episode with Matt Damon was one of the best.

    "Perfection"

    Loved it.
    Didn't know what to expect but quite liked his witty sense of humour from his TV show and on eurovision so thought I'd give it a listen.
    More than glad I did as it is thought provoking, entertaining, deep and well delivered.

    Can't wait for the next edition!!

    "Loved it!"
    If you could sum up The Life and Loves of a He Devil in three words, what would they be?

    If you like Graham Norton, you will love this book, and what you will come to realize is that he is a real person on screen and off. Witty, charming, intelligent, and very sweet!


    What did you like best about this story?

    I liked the way he organized the book into chapters by subjects. Yes, he jumps around a little, but it was easy to follow and I found myself laughing out loud at several parts, especially stories about his dogs....his humor and storytelling are pure genius.


    What about Graham Norton’s performance did you like?

    It wouldn't have been half as good, without Graham doing the narration. My only complaint is that it ended much too soon, and left me wanting more. Thank goodness for BBC America and YouTube.

    "I laughed, I cried, I want more!"
    Would you listen to The Life and Loves of a He Devil again? Why?

    Yes, candid, honest and thought provoking!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Life and Loves of a He Devil?

    Laugh out loud funny as expected, but the tears took me by surprise, his reading a letter from his agony column had me in bits!


    Have you listened to any of Graham Norton’s other performances? How does this one compare?

    No.


    Any additional comments?

    My only complaint is it ended too soon, hopefully there is more where this came from .

    Story
    "Weak, but diverting if you're a committed fan"

    If you are one of Graham Norton's many fans, then you will enjoy this collection of fairly trivial anecdotes. This is one of those rare audiobooks where it's crucial that it's read by the author - if you find his voice cheers you up, then you will find the book keeps you entertained while you are doing something else.

    As for me, I like his TV programme very much, but mainly because of his talent for getting his guests to relax and entertain us. The book does a less good job and his stories didn't seem much more amusing than those of anyone off the street, with the obvious exception of those involving celebrities. So a mixed bag, probably best left to Norton devotees.

    "A Good listen"

    Good enough so it was, a bit too much about the dogs (who cares about somebody else's dogs? You may love them but we don't ). But very enjoyable nonetheless . I think you could have told the story without being tipped back in your seat - so well done!

    "Graham Norton is hilarious"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes. Graham Norton is very funny indeed. He doesn't hold back on anything, but handles it all with a certain amount of finesse.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Life and Loves of a He Devil?

    I loved it when he talked about his labradoodle, who features all through the book.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When he spoke about his family growing up and when his Mum got ill


    Any additional comments?

    Its Graham Norton, love him or loath him, you can't deny he is naturally funny.

    "If you like Graham on telly, you'll love this too."

    A frank and amusing autobiography. We can share in his success but he never brags. Quite 'descriptive' about his relationships in parts.....then there's also lots in there about his lovely Mum and immediate family. And the dogs, he really loves his dogs. Loved it. But my absolute favourite is his recent fictional novel, now that is REALLY nice. Holding, it's called Holding.
