The Sunday Times bestseller from Graham Norton

‘A magnificent novelist.’ STUART HERITAGE for THE GUARDIAN

‘Blend[s] dark humour and emotional weight with ease.’ RADIO TIMES

‘His best yet.’ THE SUNDAY POST

‘Full of Graham’s trademark warmth and wit. It’s also a complex mystery that ties its characters together in ways they’d least expect.’ SUNDAY EXPRESS

‘Dark, funny, full of emotional intelligence and gripping from the start. ..beautifully written… Wonderful.’ DAILY MAIL

‘Beautifully constructed with a twisty plot … the perfect mix of levity and melancholy. A cracking read.’ JO BRAND

‘A winning mix of family drama and comedy crime caper … you may well find yourself reading it in one sitting.’ HEAT

‘Oh my GOD Forever Home is FABULOUS… His skill at gimlet-eyed observation and nuanced characterisation is *chef’s kiss* but this book is SO FUNNY… It’s a DELIGHT.’ MARIAN KEYES

Carol is a divorced teacher living in a small town in Ireland, her only son now grown. A second chance at love brings her unexpected connection and belonging. The new relationship sparks local speculation: what does a woman like her see in a man like that? What happened to his wife who abandoned them all those years ago? But the gossip only serves to bring the couple closer.

When Declan becomes ill, things start to fall apart. His children are untrusting and cruel, and Carol is forced to leave their beloved home with its worn oak floors and elegant features and move back in with her parents.

Carol’s mother is determined to get to the bottom of things, she won’t see her daughter suffer in this way. It seems there are secrets in Declan’s past, strange rumours that were never confronted and suddenly the house they shared takes on a more sinister significance.

In his tense and darkly comic new novel Norton casts a light on the relationship between mothers and daughters, and truth and self-preservation with unnerving effect.

‘Effortlessly readable, possessed of a super twist and full of rounded characters to keep close to your heart.’ THE OBSERVER

‘What a fabulous read… Forever Home is his best so far. It’s a complex and compelling story – truly unputdownable – but most importantly for me, it has real heart.’ MARY LAWSON

‘The latest comedy noir by Graham Norton features fractured families at their worst. I loved it!’ LIZ NUGENT

‘A tale of new beginnings and old secrets. Norton is the king of the Irish small town mystery.’ ANNE GRIFFIN
