About the event

Life and adventure in bike-size chunks.  

Join us at Bus Stop Studios for an intimate Q&A with Maria on the release of her newly publish memoir 'Bumps in the Road' 

Maria McErlane is best known for appearing in The Fast ShowKilling EveEastendersFat FriendsHIGNFYHolby City, as the voice of Eurotrash and her weekly contributions as agony aunt on the Graham Norton radio show. Her memoir details a warm and witty, sometimes difficult ride through life.

For Maria, navigating life in all its glory has been accompanied by a steady stream of bicycles.No rule book, just a love of the new and a passion for the open road.Maria details a warm and witty, sometimes difficult ride through childhood, friendships, wealth, fame, reinvention, love and loss.Each bike, each revolution, has contributed to her own evolution and the lessons she has learned along the way.Bumps in the Road gives us the same honesty and humour Maria employs for the many listeners seeking advice in her thirteen years as an agony aunt with Graham Norton. The wheel goes up and the wheel goes down. Happy or sad, life is full of joy, mishaps and annoying obstacles. It’s important to get back in the saddle, keep pedalling up that hill and freewheeling down the other side!

‘As heart-wrenchingly moving as it is laugh-out-loud funny. ’Nigella Lawson

Brutally, hilariously, scandalously honest. I inhaled it in one sitting.’Caroline Quentin

‘Funny, charming and heartbreaking.’India Knight – author of DARLING.

‘I’ve known Maria for over thirty years but apparently I’ve only talked about myself, because I scarcely knew anything of these fascinating, hilarious and heartbreaking stories.’Graham Norton
