Blurb (as seen on the back cover)
Her novels are adored by millions around the world- now read Marian Keyes’s collected journalism and exclusive, previously unpublished material in Under The Duvet.
Bursting with her hilarious observations- on life, in-laws, weight loss and parties; her love of shoes and her LTF’s (Long-Term Friends); the horrors of estate agents and lost luggage; and how she once had an office Christmas party that involved roasting two sheep on a spit, Moroccan style- it’s the perfect bedtime companion, and will have you wincing with recognition or roaring with laughter.
Under The Duvet by Marian Keyes is a collection of her journalism, some which have been published and some which hasn’t. This is the first type of book I’ve read like this and I was more than intrigued when I read the blurb; knowing I was in for a treat of a read!
In her articles she share’s her experiences in a very comical way; some will have you cringing and laughing at the same time! Also there are some serious bit when Marian share’s her personal struggles with alcoholism and other trials she has faced.
Marian has shared bit about herself giving readers a glimpse of the author behind her books. It’s a book where you can read in which ever order you wish; which I did and it did feel a bit odd but was refreshing non the less. It’s something different than what I normally read but I did enjoy and was nice to read something that’s not my norm!
