The Funny Thing About Norman Foreman by Julietta Henderson
There’s a kindred spirit among self-deprecating moms 😅 Those moms who know they’re not as perfect as they once hoped they’d be but are happy (most days) to get just a passing grade in the parenting department.
Well, Sadie Foreman from this favourite feel-good book rec is just such a kindred spirit. Not the world’s best mom by any stretch of the imagination... BUT, she’s the best mom to her Norman. And that’s what counts.
The Funny Thing About Norman Foreman is a book about growing up, feeling pain, feeling loss, and finding your funny bone again when you least feel like you have any sense of humour left.
Join Sadie, her psoriasis-ridden son Norman and their elderly mate Leonard as they traverse the English countryside and book it to Edinburgh so that (shy, timid) Norman can have a go at the world-renowned Fringe Comedy Festival.
You will laugh. You will cry. You will have the warm and fuzzies once you're done.
In this episode we chat to the author Julietta Henderson about her debut novel The Funny Thing About Norman Foreman.
