‘Holding’ by Graham Norton: Book Review

Graham Norton's debut novel, Holding, is an emotional and funny look at the inner workings of a small town and the secrets it can keep over the years.

Sergeant PJ Collins is an overweight Garda in the small town of Duneen, Co. Cork. He's self-conscious and feels like he's missed out on a lot in life. He's never been in a relationship, lives alone in the Garda barracks and feels even his job can't give him any satisfaction.
