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 both with make-up and Toblerones. And of course, agony aunt, Mammy Walsh is on hand to solve all your problems.

Hilarious and poignant, down-to-earth and moving, Marian's long-awaited second volume of journalism and previously unpublished writing is the modern woman's perfect companion. So put the kettle on and grab that Kit Kat Chunky - everything else will wait.

Light and entertaining - to dip into

A combination of newspaper articles and short stories by this successful chick-lit author which are well worth reading. Some are pbviously better than others and a couple are very funny indeed.

Firstly, we have the articles where the author talks about herself, her writing, her family and her husband (known always as "Himself"). Although the writing is funny, as usual, the author does not shy away from serious issues. I don't expect that her real life is as chaotic and entertainment filled as it appears here but it is enjoyable to read how she sees life.

The short stories included in the book are good but the prize is a number of short pieces written as her great creation Mammy Walsh. Mammy is answering "readers'" questions about life and has very strong views - there is definitely a whole book there if she keeps on writing them.

A book to dip in and out of - you won't regret it.
