Number-one bestselling author Marian Keyes, best known for hilarious and moving novels, such as This Charming Man, The Other Side of the Story and the award-winning Anybody Out There, offers her readers the chance to get to know the real Marian and follow her observations on just about everything in Under the Duvet.

'When people ask me what I do for a crust 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 . . .'

High heels, movie deals, wagon wheels, shoes, reviews, having the blues, builders, babies, families and other calamities

Her novels are adored by millions around the world - now read Marian Keyes' collected journalism in 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 estates 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 bed-time companion, and will have you wincing with recognition or roaring with laughter.

'A poet of the everyday . . . noticing everything about everything, rendering situations instantly recognizable and, more often than not, funny' Wendy Holden, Daily Mail

'Anyone who has pored over Marian Keyes's bestsellers will leap at the chance to discover another side to this much-loved author' Hello!

'Her honesty and humour can have you laughing out loud' Heat

Under the Duvet is the first of two collections of Marian Keyes's journalism and is followed up by Further Under the Duvet which is also available from Penguin. Keyes's literary career began with the publication of her first Walsh sisters novel, Watermelon, and, since then, she has received critical acclaim in the UK and abroad.
