Penguin Picks are stories you'll want to read again and again. Beautifully and stylishly designed by a modern artist, they are not only stories you'll keep coming back to but also books whose looks will never go out of fashion . . .
From the bestselling author Marian Keyes, the hilariously heartbreaking Angels follows the tale of the fabulous and uplifting Walsh sister, Maggie . . .
'Though he never said anything, I knew Garv blamed me.
And that was OK, because I blamed me too.'
One day Maggie Walsh walks out on her husband of nine years and runs away to Hollywood. There she joins her best friend Emily, who is busily pitching scripts to studios, mixing with movie stars and generally living the heck out of the dream. Maggie should be enjoying herself but she can't stop thinking about her husband Garv and the life she's run away from. Is her sojourn in the City of Angels a once-in-a-lifetime journey of self-discovery, or is she simply hiding from the one thing she cannot face?
