Reviews

Columns, geschreven voor tijdschriften en gedeeltelijk ongepubliceerd gebleven. Ierse humor (vaak ook over Ierse situaties) die in het Nederlands niet altijd overkomt. Via overdrijving worden hilarische toestanden beschreven. Het artikeltje over haar overwonnen alcoholisme heeft een ernstige ondertoon. Veel vergelijkingen tussen Ierland en Groot-Brittannië. Marian Keyes woonde in Londen, maar na haar dertigste ging ze terug naar Ierland, waar ze luchtige romans schreef. Haar echte fans zijn, gezien de reacties op internet, niet erg onder de indruk van deze uitgave. Kleine druk.
