Alive and well

In which G.M. Norton feels alive.


Back in October, when announcing that I'd decided to step away from the editor's desk at In Retrospect magazine, I revealed something extremely personal - my struggle with depression.

I received so many messages from readers, it was truly heart-warming. Including fellow sufferers, sharing their experiences and advice.

I thought it was time for an update on how I've been getting on.

Review: Groom Mate Platinum XL

In which G.M. Norton can finally impersonate Kenneth Williams without fear of stray nose hairs.


There comes a time in life where we need to address something right under our nose. And inside our ears for that matter.

Yes, that’s right, chumrades. I’m referring to nose and ear hair.

Ever evolving style

In which G.M. Norton thinks about clothes. And food.


I must confess, I spend much of my waking life thinking about two things. The first is food, which I absolutely adore, and the second is menswear.
Unfortunately for me, the food I eat has a detrimental effect on the fit of my clothes, although in truth, I quite like my larger build. I'd just like to lose half a stone so that some of my jackets aren't quite as snug as they are at the moment.

During the dark, wet winter, I crave hot tasty food so with a bit of luck, once spring has sprung, I won't be seeking quite as much comforting stodge and can shift a few pounds.

Over the last couple of years, I've been making a conscious effort to improve the casual side of my wardrobe.
