We Have a Good Time ... Don't We?

Front Cover
Hachette Books Ireland, Oct 12, 2012 - Biography & Autobiography - 320 pages

In her hilarious debut, Maeve Higgins smashes the brittle veneer on the creme brulée of life and hands around spoons, so we can all taste the delicious absurdity that lies beneath. She then promises to stop making terrible food analogies about everything.
From terrifying hen nights, malevolent dolphins and angry bakers, to runaway cats, a stalker who won't commit and the curse of over-politeness, Maeve writes with warmth and wit about what it's like to be a regular human girl.
We Have a Good Time...Don't We? introduces a strikingly original voice that celebrates the truth of what we really feel about ourselves through these hilarious and perceptive snapshots of life.
