'When people ask me what I do for a crust and I tell them that I'm a novelist, they immediately assume that my life is a non-stop carousel of limos, television appearances, hair-dos, devoted fans, stalkers and all the glitzy paraphernalia of being a public figure.
It's time to set the record straight. I write alone, in a darkened bedroom, wearing my PJs, eating bananas, my laptop on a pillow in front of me...' Her novels are read and adored by millions around the world - now read Marian Keyes' collected pieces: regular bulletins from the woman under the duvet.
Bursting with her hilarious observations - on life, in-laws, weight loss and parties; her love of shoes and her LTFs (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.
