An all-new poetry collection from the creator, writer and performer of the award-winning BBC Radio 4 series, 'A Normal…' Written between August 2017 and January 2019, these poems are concerned with the search for meaning, identity and truth, and other foolhardy adventures. Henry Normal is a writer, poet, TV and film producer, founder of the Manchester Poetry Festival (now the Manchester Literature Festival) and co-founder of the Nottingham Poetry Festival. In June 2017 he was honoured with a special BAFTA for services to television. Henry co-wrote and script edited the multi-award-winning Mrs Merton Show and the spin-off series Mrs Merton and Malcolm.

With Steve Coogan, he co-wrote the BAFTA-winning Paul and Pauline Calf Video Diaries, Coogan's Run, Tony Ferrino, Doctor Terrible, all of Steve's live tours, and the film The Parole Officer. Setting up Baby Cow Productions in 1999, Henry Executive Produced all, and script edited many, of the shows of its seventeen-and-a-half-year output during his tenure as MD. Highlights of the Baby Cow output during this time include Oscar-nominated Philomena, Gavin and Stacey, I Believe in Miracles, Moone Boy, Uncle, Red Dwarf, The Mighty Boosh, Marion and Geoff, Nighty Night, Camping, Hunderby and Alan Partridge. Since retiring in April 2016, Henry has written and performed five BBC Radio 4 shows, A Normal Family, A Normal Life, A Normal Love, A Normal Imagination and A Normal Nature, combining comedy, poetry and stories about bringing up his autistic son.
