Synopsis

In mid-60s Belfast, Eddie Francey is a young comedian trying to get a break. He wonders if he has what it takes, but he has responsibilities: a wife and young son. He worries if he is the kind of guy who will take the necessary risks, the kind to jump off a cliff. This is the point when an explosive passion for another woman, who could not be more off-limits, overtakes him. Family means a lot to him. All he has ever dreamt of is success. The last thing he needs at the moment is to fall for the last woman on earth he ought to fall for. In this emotive, page-turning story, Robert Graham has created a self-centred, cold-hearted charmer who after a lifetime of keeping himself walled in, suddenly finds that all his barriers are down. Eddie Francey is a prose version of Tony Soprano, a man who retains the reader's sympathy even when his behaviour is unsympathetic. A Man Walks Into A Kitchen is both love story and comedy. But will the comedy in the end turn into a tragedy?
