My tbr-pile is so huge at the moment that I really don't have time to read this now. So I'm thinking about making this a bookring, if there's interest. The cover art on my copy looks like the one on this journal entry.

Update 1/9/04 Finally I had time to go to the post office and the book is now on its way to Jaysgirl in UK.
Update (3rd March): what a funny book! :) It is so easy to recognise oneself in the stories that Marian Keyes tells about her life. The funny thing is that I found several parallels between what she says about herself and her family and the characters in her other books, especially with the Walsh family from Watermelon, Angels and Rachel's holiday.
Now on to mfa.
however, this is such a simple book that i guess not much has moved inside my head after i finished it... i clearly remember feeling a bit estranged because i don't like make-up, girlie magazines or high heels. but i should still be able to enjoy a bit of non-fictional chick lit. which i did, in a very light way. but i could never get over the fact that keyes herself was not much different from the main character in the only novel of hers that i've read so far (rachel's holiday)- a bit nicer, in fact. and that might sound like a compliment but it is not, as far as a writer is concerned.
will be posted again tomorrow (sorry for the delay).
sent to nikelise.
I went to the post office at the trainstation today, so I could send it on Sunday...it is on its way to Hathyia in Malaysia.
Sent it from the post office of the Viennese Train Station West.
