Taken from the back cover:
"Slide further under the duvet, get yourself comfortable and let Marian take you places you've never been before...
Places like the Irish air-guitar championships, a shopping trip to Bloomingdales with a difference and Cannes with a chronic case of Villa-itis. Along the way you'll encounter knicker-politics, fake tans, sticky-out ears and passionate love affairs with both make-up and Toblerones. And, of course, agony aunt Mammy Walsh is on hand to solve all your problems.
Hilarious and poignant, Marian's long-awaited second volume of journalism, and previously unpublished writing, including severalshort stories, is the modern woman's perfect companion. So put the kettle on, grab that Kit Kat Chunky - everything else will wait."

Just finished!
No, it didn't take me a year to finish the book (since the previous journal entry), it took me about a week since i started reading it.
I think this was more enjoying for me than Under The Duvet, even thought it's the same story more or less. Marian Keyes writing short stories, previously unpublished or not. I especially liked Mammy Walsh's questions and answers. I don't remember if there were any of these in Under The Duvet, but even if there were i didn't give them much credit when i read it, probably because i hadn't read other Marian Keyes's books, so as to know who this Mammy Walsh really is. But now it all makes sense and it's quite funny actually!
