High heels, movie deals, wagon wheels, shoes, reviews, having the blues, builders, babies, families and other calamities.... Many think that Marian Keyes leads a glitzy life of limos, television, and showbiz parties - but she would argue that she spends the majority of her life writing alone, wearing her PJs, and eating bananas with a laptop on a pillow in front of her. Under the Duvet is a wide collection of her journalism and stories - all personal, closely observed, and painfully funny. Download and start listening now!

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jodi | 2/12/2014

    " For Marian Keyes fans, this is a collection of short stories/essays that she wrote for various Irish publications. It also includes previously unpublished works. Some of the stories had me laughing out loud. And, I thoroughly enjoyed all of the Irish colloquialisms. "

    " Funny stories! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Andrea | 1/28/2014

    " I didnt' think that I could love Marian Keyes any more until I read this collection of her essays and articles that she has written for various newspapers and magazines (mostly in Ireland & the UK). If I remember correctly, these are not short fiction stories, but short essays about her life, family, and travels. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Maria M. Elmvang | 1/27/2014

    " I've long read and enjoyed Marian Keyes' novels, so I figured it was about time to read her essay collection. I tried it once before many years ago, but at the time hadn't realized that it wasn't yet another novel, so pretty quickly gave up on it as it wasn't what I was expecting. This time I knew what to expect, and greatly enjoyed it. It's always interesting to learn more about the person behind the books. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kay | 1/24/2014

    " This was fun -- read it on my Kindle on my commute. These are short reviews, essays, etc. and are the perfect length for a train ride. They have all of Keyes's typical wit and charm. Lightweight but no less enjoyable for that fact. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Abby | 6/16/2013

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Cookiemakermom | 2/12/2013

    " Got bored with this book. Stopped reading it for a bit to read the Kite Runner and couldn't go back to it after that. It's kind of cute and witty, good for light humor, but blah. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jessica | 12/9/2012

    " This is a collection of some of Marian Keyes columnes and other texts. I really enjoyed it and it reminded me a little of Sophie Kinsella but not as good but not to far off either :P "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Celeste | 11/8/2012

    " eh, I found it hard to get into this one. Unlike MK's other books, this one is a compilation of short stories and I was more in the mood for a novel so I was a little disappointed. I'm sure it's a fine book but I just couldn't get through it... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jessica Bell | 4/18/2012

    " It's a collection of newspaper column publications. Short and sweet pieces; perfect to dip in and out of whenever. And gosh, she's funny sometimes. Reading Marian Keyes is like going to see a chick flick. Guilty pleasures ... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 mellyana | 10/5/2011

    " I really like Marian Keyes, but this book was just ok. I got a few chuckles out of it. Enjoyed the essay about her addiction, but for the most part found this book a little bland. Oh well. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nikki | 2/4/2011

    " Sometimes hilarious, sometimes easy-to-read comfort, sometimes straying too far into chickish women-love-shoes and Sunday magazine banality. "
