Publisher's Summary

Welcome to Louis Theroux’s house where the much-loved TV documentary-maker, Grounded podcaster and best-selling author of Gotta Get Theroux This finds himself in unexpected danger....

Like millions of others, Louis Theroux’s plans were mothballed by the onset of COVID. Unable to escape to the porn sets and the prisons and the maximum-security mental hospitals that are his usual journalistic feeding ground, the garlanded documentary maker began reporting on a location even more full of pitfalls and hostile objects of inquiry - his own home during a pandemic.

Theroux the Keyhole is an honest, hilarious and ultimately heartwarming diary of the weirdness of family life in COVID World. A wife intolerant of his obsession with Joe Wicks’ daily workouts who also suspects he takes on the cooking less as a way of being helpful and more to avoid child-care. Two teen-aged sons, inseparable from their videogames. A five-year-old happily spamming out videos on his own new TikTok account while on holiday with his oblivious family.

Louis also describes how he launches his podcast, Grounded, flies to the US to film a new Tiger King documentary and aims his sights on the latest incarnation of the far right in a world becoming radicalised by social media.

Thoughtful, Gentle, Honest.

Montaigne may have created the genre, but Theroux elevates it with a grace only available to honest to god weirdos. A diary seems like a “simple” thing to maintain; hopefully you can appreciate just how difficult it is to do anything “simple”. If you are keen to peak into a mirror, one which will not judge the face it is obliged to reflect, consider giving this book a listen.

Insightful and comforting

What a wonderful experience this audio book was. Arriving at what I hoped would be the end of the miseries of the pandemic and the last of living lives with the joy wrung out; the virus spiked again. I listened at bedtime and found comfort in hearing stories of how this young family was challenged to maintain the day to day under the stresses of lock downs. Kindness, humor and love were constant. I was reminded that rather than just a time of deprivation that at least this family found incredible strength and honesty in the covid year. A keyhole well worth peeking through.

takes a while for it to get going

honest account of Louis' lockdown. interesting but not exhilarating insight into the legendary documentary maker's world. good to know he struggles with the same problems as the rest of us although there are a few too many references to current affairs that we may not wish to be reminded of so soon.

Bowel Shatteringly Funny! 😂

An interesting and hilarious account of Louis inside life during the curse of covid lockdown. 🤣 As we have grown to expect Louis narration and story is one for the ages - all be it relatable and roaringly hilarious. 🤯
This latest addition to the repertoire of monumental accounts leaves you wanting more and tantalized in anticipation for what's next to come. 🧐
The weird and wonderful world of Louis Theroux is one to keep every listener coming back for more 💉.
Without a doubt the perfect excuse to crack open the archives of past and present contributions we've all been graciously entertained by throughout the decades.
Thank you for this marvelous audible entertainment. 👍🏻
