Marian Keyes outsold all British or Irish authors last year, a testament to the popularity of her writing style. Marian's new novel Anybody Out There? is part-suspense novel, part-comedy and part-tragedy, but fully enthralling! --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.
'I had to go back to New York and try to find him. There was a chance he mightn't be there but I had to give it a go because there was one thing I was certain of: he wasn't here.' Anna Walsh is officially a wreck. Physically broken and emotionally shattered, she lies on her parents' Dublin sofa with only one thing on her mind: getting back to New York. New York means her best friends, The Most Fabulous Job In The World and above all, it means her husband, Aidan. But nothing in Anna's life is that simple anymore! Not only is her return to Manhattan complicated by her physical and emotional scars - but Aidan seems to have vanished. Is it time for Anna to move on? Is it even possible for her to move on? A motley group of misfits, an earth-shattering revelation, two births and one very weird wedding might help Anna find some answers - and will change her life forever. Hilarious, heartbreaking and life-affirming, Marian's unforgettable new novel is as epic as it is entertaining.
