9780060787035: Cracks in My Foundation: Bags, Trips, Make-up Tips, Charity, Glory, and the Darker Side of the Story

Go further under the covers and stay in bed a little longer with Marian Keyes in this winning follow-up to her smash essay collection, Under the Duvet. Written in the witty, forthright style that has earned her legions of devoted readers, Cracks in My Foundation offers an even deeper and more candid look into this beloved author's mind and heart, exploring such universal themes as friends and family, home, glamour and beauty, children, travel, and more. Marian's hilarious and thoughtful take on life makes her readers feel they are reading a friend, not just an author.

Marian continues to entertain with her reports from the trenches, and throws in some original short fiction as well. Whether it's visiting Siberia, breaking it off with an old hairdresser, shopping (of course!), turning forty, living with her beloved husband, Himself (a man beyond description), or musing on the F word (feminism), Marian shares the joys, passions, and sorrows of her world and helps us feel good about our own. So grab a latte and a pillow and get ready to laugh your slippers off!

About the Author:

Marian Keyes is the author of ten bestselling novels and two essay collections. She lives in Ireland with her husband and their two imaginary dogs.

From Publishers Weekly:

Bestseller Keyes does what she does best in this collection of stories and essays: wax comic about shoes, hairdressers, makeup, travel, family and romance in prose as light and sweet as a sugar-dusted angel food cake. Her essay "They Say You Always Remember Your First Time..." offers a glimpse of Keyes's love affair with makeup, and while it reads like an enthusiastic letter to the product pages of Vogue, it's also sprinkled with endearing bouts of self-deprecation ("If face creams were husbands, then I am Elizabeth Taylor"). While most of the short stories stick solidly on the side of fun, Keyes makes a few attempts to tackle more serious topics, from divorce in the odd "A Woman's Right to Shoes," to domestic abuse in the far graver "Under." While the book feels even less substantial than the average chick lit confection, Keyes's winning voice and her focus on the basic business of life and how to live it happily should appeal to female readers caught between Sex in the City and The Golden Girls.
