‘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.

Her novels are read and adored by millions around the world – now read Marian Keyes’s collected pieces: regular bulletins from the woman under the duvet.
Under The Duvet is a collection of previously published as well as unpublished writings by Marian Keyes. Most of them are lighthearted and humorous however a couple are quite in depth, serious memoirs. They give a glimpse into the real life of Marian Keyes – in true Marian Keyes style.
I really enjoyed this collection. It captured Marian’s writing style perfectly. She writes so well an honest take on life’s issues – both serious and not so serious – with a mix of fun and humour. It was also really interesting to read true facts about her actual life.
I would definitely recommend this book to fans of Marian Keyes as well as those new to her writings. It won’t disappoint!
