Book details

Better known as co-writer of award- winning TV and film shows such as The Royle Family, The Mrs Merton Show and Coogan’s Run, and producer of, amongst others, Oscar- nominated Philomena, Gavin and Stacey, Moone Boy and Alan Partridge, Henry Normal returns to his first love: poetry.

Staring Directly at the Eclipse is his first collection of poetry for over twenty years. It features poems from his acclaimed BBC Radio 4 program A Normal Family, together with new and selected poetry from his performance work.

As well as his trademark humour, the collection encompasses the subjects of death, loneliness, loss, human frailty and other classic conversation stoppers.
