Waterstones Says

There are few writers as capable of skewering the contradictions, frustrations and frictions of family life with as much humour and piercing accuracy as Marian Keyes and her latest sees her on sparkling form. When one woman's concussion leads to an outpouring of long-contained gripes and secrets, it calls into question just how civilised and 'grown-up' any of us actually are.

They're a glamorous family, the Caseys.

Johnny Casey, his two brothers Ed and Liam, their beautiful, talented wives and all their kids spend a lot of time together - birthday parties, anniversary celebrations, weekends away. And they're a happy family. Johnny's wife, Jessie - who has the most money - insists on it.

Under the surface, though, conditions are murkier. While some people clash, other people like each other far too much . . .

Everything stays under control until Ed's wife Cara, gets concussion and can't keep her thoughts to herself. One careless remark at Johnny's birthday party, with the entire family present, starts Cara spilling out all their secrets.

In the subsequent unravelling, every one of the adults finds themselves wondering if it's time - finally - to grow up?

MEDIA REVIEWS

‘Has an almost Austenesque insight into character, if Austen had written about period poverty, the trouble with fast fashion, a precocious 12-year-old who “operated like a union rep for the five youngest cousins” and a straight-talking, sauvignon-drinking asylum-seeker called Perla… It’s a mature piece of work by an accomplished writer.’ - The Guardian

'Rest assured that the latest novel by Marian Keyes is up there with her best.' - The Express

“A rare treat!”

I am a big Marian Keyes fan, so when I found out she had a new book out. I could not wait to read it!
Quirky, memorable, yet at other times I found it quietly profound. Marian tackles the reality of modern day life.... More

“Irish family saga with 21st century issues - entertaining enough.”

I asked for this novel for my wife who has read other Marian Keyes novels and enjoyed them . However, as this is a review copy, it only seemed right for me to read it. It deals with an extended modern Irish family... More

“Funny and heartwarming while addressing some serious issues.”

I have loved Marian’s writing since I read my first of her books, Sushi for Beginners almost 20 years ago. I have never discovered another writer who can deal so sensitively with difficult subject matter and make me... More
