I can relate to Marian Keyes - she is so real and funny. i love her books, and this collection of short stories and essays is fantastic. a quick read, but so entertaining at the same time. Usually i'm not a fan of short stories, but this collection is so great. if you like her novels, you will love this collection. I think that if i were to meet Marian Keyes, we would be friends, we have so much in common!
I especially enjoyed reading The Mammy Walsh Problem Page, with the matriarch of the Walsh clan giving advice, using her wacky daughters as examples...which you'll appreciate if you've read Keyes' other books featuring the Walsh girls. Very entertaining.
