Marian Keyes! She has become a new favorite author of mine. A fun compilation of Keyes' journalism from magazines and newspapers, plus exclusive, previously unpublished material-this book is bursting with funny stories.

Really funny slice of life observances. Marian Keyes writes with such humanity, she makes you want to join her in her adventurous disasters!

when I first requested this I thought it would be a novel, not a non-fiction book. However, I read it anyway & was glad I did. It gives a great insight into the mind of one of today's most popular authors.

Marian loves shoes and her 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-stylve. She's just like you and me. 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.

This is a collection of personal essays on shopping, writing, moviemaking, motherhood and all the assorted clamities involved in being a savvy woman in the new millennium. This is a great read! I am a Marian Keyes fan and have read the majority of her books. Unfortunately, I gave them away before I knew abouth PBS. The other Keyes book I have is "Sushi for Beginners".

This is a neat book with her newpaper articles. Very funny but also moving at the same time. You learn about about her.

I thought this was a witty commentary about the author's life. It was great getting to "know" the author behind the books.

I was disappointed when I first got this book, I grabbed it up at a garage sale because I like Marian Keyes, thinking it was like her other books. It is not, it is actually a collection of essays but I was pleasantly surprised, it is really good! A quick read and she writes with descriptions so colorful, you cannot help but smile, she also tackles her alcoholism in one essay which I thought was brave and interesting, it is not all light and sunshine. A good read!
