Under the Duvet: Shoes, Reviews, Having the Blues, Builders, Babies, Families and Other Calamities
From the acclaimed bestselling author of Sushi for Beginners and Angels comes a collection of personal essays on shopping, writing, moviemaking, motherhood and all the assorted calamities involved in being a savvy woman in the new millennium.
Her novels are read and adored by millions around the world, and with Under the Duvet, Marian Keyes tackles the world of nonfiction. These are her collected pieces: regular bulletins from the woman writing under the covers.
Marian loves shoes and her LTFs (Long-Term Friends), hates realtors and lost luggage, and she once had a Christmas office party that involved roasting two sheep on a spit, Moroccan-style. She's just like you and me ...
Featuring a wide compilation of Marian's journalism from magazines and newspapers, plus some exclusive, previously unpublished material, Under the Duvet is bursting with funny stories: observations on life, in-laws, weight loss, parties and driving lessons that will keep you utterly gripped -- either wincing with recognition or roaring with laughter.

I collection of short stories and essays. I appreciated the humor, especially the part when she writes about attracting the loonies on the bus. It happens to me all the time so I can relate. Read full review

Marian Keyes is as deliciously fun & interesting when talking about her life as when telling about the lives of her fictional characters; a quick fun bit of fluff to read when you're feeling all girly girl. Read full review
