'When people ask me what I do for a crust and I tell them that I'm a novelist, they immediately assume that my life is a non-stop carousel of limos, television appearances, hair-dos, devoted fans, stalkers and the glitzy paraphernalia of being a public figure.
It's time to set the record straight.
I write alone, in a darkened bedroom, wearing my PJs, eating bananas, my laptop on a pillow in front of me . . .'

Her novels are adored by millions around the world - now read Marian Keyes's collected journalism and exclusive, previously unpublished material in Under the Duvet .

Bursting with her hilarious observations - on life, in-laws, weight loss and parties; her love of shoes and her LTFs (Long-Term Friends); the horrors of estate agents and lost luggage; and how she once had an office Christmas party that involved roasting two sheep on a spit, Moroccan style - it's the perfect bedtime companion, and will have you wincing with recognition or roaring with laughter.

Great collection of nonfiction articles and short stories by Keyes! There were clear ties to her fiction works, and it was neat to read about the influences for her books, particularly the sisters series (starting with Watermelon).
