The Beauty Within Shadow is narrated by Henry Normal. Written between August 2019 and June 2020, these poems are concerned with the balancing of darkness and light in our everyday lives, the search for an understanding of pain and sorrow, and the processing of other thoughts we’d usually avoid by filling our days with mindless distractions. "Shove up National Treasures. We need to make room for Henry Normal." - Radio Times "The Alan Bennett of poetry" - The Scotsman "Distinctly funny" - Time Out "Witty and uncannily accurate with his observations." - The Stage "Dovetails bittersweet poetry with a sublimely observant wit." - The Guardian 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.

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 Ltd 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.
