The brand-new novel from million-copy bestseller and national treasure Graham Norton

‘A magnificent novelist’ GUARDIAN

‘What a storyteller!’ ELIZABETH DAY
‘His writing is evocative and perfect’ MARIAN KEYES

Always on the periphery, looking on, young Frankie Howe was never quite sure enough of herself to take centre stage - after all, life had already judged her harshly. Now old, Frankie finds it easier to forget the life that came before.

Then Damian, a Irish young carer, arrives at her London flat, there to keep an eye on her as she recovers from a fall. A memory is sparked, and the past crackles into life as Damian listens to the story Frankie has kept stored away all these years. Travelling from post-war Ireland to 1960s New York - a city full of art, larger than life characters and turmoil - Frankie shares a world in which friendship and chance encounters collide. A place where, for a while, life blazes with an intensity that can’t last but will perhaps live on in other ways and in other people.

Frankie is a dazzling, decades-sweeping novel about love, bravery and what it means to live a significant life.
