Thank you, I loved the book - although it didn't help me with productivity while working from home! I love all her books!

Thank you for the book! I loved it and read it over a few days. I liked the way the book was linked together, even with the different timelines. It all came together in the end.

I love MK, I am going to try and think of an excellent question! I bought the above book with real money and it was good! (Though the Walsh family books are my favourites). Also MK should always be on Strictly: it takes two- she is awesome on it!

Off to think now smile

Cocolepew Fri 05-Jun-15 15:10:00

I read the book on the Kindle when it came out and I loved it.

Question is would you like to appear on Strictly and who would your partner be?
I have first dibs on Pasha btw smile

adore this woman.it's a great pleasure & indulgence to reread her books. I go to Ireland on business a bit, and find myself biting my lip sometimes with people and situations that are pure Marian Keyes.
I must apologise for buying a lot of them from charity shops & sending them back there again, or borrowing from the library. I feel i need to contribute a little more given the level of enjoyment I've had.

I love Luke the Real Man. So much.

ShebaQueen Fri 05-Jun-15 15:48:23

Hi Marian, I'm a huge fan and follow you on Twitter, I love hearing all about your family, especially "the Mammy".

What's your latest beach house banjo project?

HeartsTrumpDiamonds Fri 05-Jun-15 17:48:03

Hi Marian, welcome to Mumsnet!

Do you remember meeting me at a book signing in Sydney about 15 years ago? <funny> I remember meeting you grin grin I think it was for Sushi For Beginners. You were lovely - we had quite a chat and I love your accent.

So my question is about book signings. Do you like them or are they a necessary evil?

spidermanswoman Fri 05-Jun-15 17:50:24

I got this book for Christmas and loved it. I've read all of marians books and I always sit down to read the next one with relish.

I will come back with a question.

Doobydoo Fri 05-Jun-15 19:27:28

I LOVE you Marian! You have made me laugh and cry. I would really like to know how you gave up alcohol. I know it isn't book related. Also your inspiration for the Walsh family.

JuniDD Fri 05-Jun-15 19:41:15

I love Marian and always buy her books in hard back. <fangirl>

My question is, what your current favourite make up/beauty item? Afraid I'm not on Twitter much now to get your recommendations and I miss them!

You are amazing! Xxx

almondfinger Fri 05-Jun-15 19:43:35

Marion you are wonderful. I love your books. I don't think any other book has me me laugh as much as Last Chance Saloon. I enjoyed it so much I restarted it as soon as I finished. Then DH read it to see what was so funny.

I slept with Rachel's holiday under my pillow for a few nights when I finished it as I was so sorry to get to the end of it.

No question. Just wanted to tell you you are fab!

LadyFuckrington Fri 05-Jun-15 20:25:50

I love Marian. Rachel's Holiday and Lucy Sullivan, and others of hers saved my life, no word of a lie.

I love how she writes about depression, and I know she has her own struggles with the Black Dog. I have the utmost respect for her and just want her to know that her books are like my best friends, my dog eared and well read copies of each have pride of place on my bookshelves.

I don't really have a question, I just wanted to share some love.

Carriemac Fri 05-Jun-15 20:51:55

Marian I think you are amazing . I love all your books.

pigwitch Fri 05-Jun-15 20:59:20

Hi Marian !
I have read and enjoyed all your books - and then gone back to them at a later date and read them again. I think the book that had a really profound affect on me was Watermelon. I read it from cover to cover in bed after an horrific breakup from an abusive relationship. It helped and helped me focus and put things in perspective. Thank you!
I wanted to ask how you get the ideas for your books? Also I know it's personal but how do you stay 'dry'? Is it easy now or a constant battle?

KatieScarlettreregged Fri 05-Jun-15 21:05:33

Last Chance Saloon.
Tara's fuckwit boyfriend Thomas
(and his purse). He was so recognisable I wondered if Marian was drawing on RL when she dreamt him up. Would love to know.
