Under the Duvet
Under the Duvet: Shoes, Reviews, Having the Blues, Builders, Babies, Families and Other Calamities | Marian Keyes
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 Featuring a wide compilation of Marian's journalism from magazines and newspapers, plus some exclusive, previously unpublished material, Under the Duvet is bursting with funny stories: observations on life, in-laws, weight loss, parties and driving lessons that will keep you utterly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.

If you‘re used to Marian‘s fiction stories you won‘t be disappointed by her essays. She uses the same writing style and depth mixed with humor when discussing her own life. She somehow forgot one key thing in the giant subtitle: Booze.

I read this for the #WhatsInANameChallenge - I needed “footwear” and “Shoes “ is in the subtitle.

Also read this for #bookspinbingo last month but am late posting my reviews!

Another author similar to Maeve Binchy that we could read together. I own lots of her books too!

Andrew65 I don‘t know this book, but love her writing. Authentically Irish! (edited) 5y

I'm loving this podcast series with Marian Keyes. She's so funny and cute. Love her. It's called Between Ourselves, and she reads some of her nonfiction too. Recommend it if you're a Marian fan.

TrishB She is very funny! 5y

I‘ve mentioned a few times my appreciation of Marian Keyes and her books - it‘s actually been awhile since I‘ve read any, so I may have to remedy that soon!

This is a collection of essays, somewhat humorous, on various topics, including #babies . I think she would be so fun to know IRL! #Ayupaugust

Cinfhen Totally agree ♥️ 5y
CoffeeAndABook Absolutely!!! What a riot it would be too hang out with her 🤩 5y
squirrelbrain Great pick! 👍😁 5y
ferskner I'm ashamed that I've never read any of her stuff! 5y
