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.

Read if you want to laugh-cry...

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.

Light frothy fun

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

A must read for fans

If you are a fan of Graham Norton, this absolutely is a must read. I listened to the audible version which is narrated by Graham himself. Graham is a wonderful narrator and I am confident that his reading of the audio book added layer upon layer of dimension and feeling that would been lacking in the print version. My only nit with the book is I wished he had delved a little more into his personal life and journey. Although as I write that, I think of other memoirs that dip the reader so deep they nearly drown. Perhaps it is that, much like watching his weekly show, I find whatever time I spend with Graham is never quite enough.

I found the way in which he separated out the sections of his memoir was extremely beneficial to the flow of his story, and allowed the reader to not be stuck in any one particular time period of his life for an ungodly amount of time. This organization made the book easy to follow and all the more entertaining. Finally, Graham's humor is on full display. I don't think I've ever smiled and giggled this much while reading a memoir.

If you love Graham, you'll love this book!

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.

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.

Easy and funny listen

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.

Sharp, rapid-fire funniness that I will miss now that it’s over!

This is a very candid look into this (ahem) gentleman’s life. He fearlessly shares the outrageous, an even touches lightly on some very personal and painful moments, but for the most part this is just rollicking good fun. Folding the laundry without him to listen to will never be the same. I can’t imagine anyone not laughing their socks off listening to it!

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.
