  • Home Stretch, by Graham Norton. Coronet. $32.99.

Graham Norton is one of the highest-paid people on the BBC payroll and receives even more from his own company which produces The Graham Norton Show. So why, you wonder, go to the trouble of writing novels? To suggest that it was just a way of cashing in on his popularity - an impression reinforced by the publishers who give his name more prominence than the book's title - would be unfair, because the evidence from this book is that he is a fine writer and an excellent storyteller.
