Welcome to the magnificent Making It Up As I Go Along – aka the World According to Marian Keyes™ - a bold and brilliant collection of Marian’s hilarious and often heartfelt observations on modern life, love and everything in between.

From a guide to breaking up with your hairdresser to entering the fifties-zone, the joys of her nail varnish museum to singing her way through insomnia, Marian will have you laughing with delight and gasping with recognition throughout – because at the end of the day, each and every one of us is clearly making it up as we go along.

Reviews

Will make you laugh, cry and feel less alone. Fabulous

Good Housekeeping

Never far from barmy, always warm and real. But in the interstices of fun and frippery comes a sincere clarity. At times she is the darkest of light writers

Daily Telegraph

Keyes manages to verbalize the most mundane of universal experiences and somehow make them funny . . .

Sunday Tribune

A hilarious, sympathetic read
