Marian Keyes' Sushi for Beginners is the blissfully funny, smart tale of three women who discover that the line between success and failure, happiness and sadness, sanity and madness is finer than they ever thought . . . 'Dammit,' she realized. 'I think I'm having a nervous breakdown.' Hot-shot magazine editor Lisa Edwards' career is destined for high-rise New York, when suddenly she's blown off-course into the delights of low-rise Dublin.
But what on earth can she do about it? Ashling Kennedy, Lisa's super-organized assistant, is good at worrying.
Too good. She's even terrified of a little bit of raw fish . . . Clodagh Kelly is Ashling's best friend and has done everything right: beautiful kids and a husband come prince - everything in fact that Ashling has ever wanted.
She should be - yet, she's not - happy. Three women on the verge of happiness and even closer to a complete breakdown.
Which way will they fall? 'Keyes has given romantic comedy a much-needed face-lift.
Chatty and warmhearted, Keyes's talent is to tell it how it is' Independent 'Laden with plots twists, jokey asides and nicely turned bits of zeitgeisty observational humour ... her energetic, well-constructed prose delivers life and people in satisfyingly various shades of grey' Guardian 'The voice of a generation' Daily Mirror
