Under the Duvet is a laugh-out-loud collection of brilliant observations on everyday life from the bestselling author Marian Keyes

'I write alone, in a darkened bedroom, wearing my PJs, eating bananas, my laptop on a pillow in front of me . . .'

Under the Duvet is Marian Keyes' first collection of brilliant, whipsmart journalism. Bursting with her hilarious observations on subjects as varied as in-laws, gyms, gardening and parties; her love affair with shoes and her week spent as a magazine dogsbody; the horrors of estates agents and friendly loonies on the bus; and what she gets up to on her holidays when she's not supposed to be writing; it's the perfect bed-time companion.

'A poet of the everyday . . . noticing everything about everything, rendering situations instantly recognizable and funny' Wendy Holden, Daily Mail

'Her honesty and humour can have you laughing out loud' Heat
