Funny Thing about Norman Foreman, The

Author(s): Julietta Henderson

Australian Fiction

What do you get when you cross a painfully awkward son, lofty comedic ambition and a dead best friend?


Norman and Jax are a legendary comedic duo in waiting, with a five-year plan to perform at the Edinburgh Fringe by the time they're fifteen. But when Jax dies before they turn twelve, Norman decides paying tribute to his best friend just can't wait... so he rewrites their plan:

1. Look after mum
2. Find Dad
3. Get to the Edinburgh Fringe

Sadie knows she's never going to win Mother of the Year, and not knowing exactly who her son's father is doesn't help. But when she finds Norman's new plan, all she wants is to see her son smile again... So they set off on a pilgrimage to Edinburgh, making a few stops to find Norman's dad along the way.
