Anybody Out There

book | Fiction | 2006
UK → Penguin
‘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 apartment, The Most Fabulous Job In The World™ and above all, it means her husband, Aidan.

But nothing in Anna’s life is that simple. 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 to? A motley group of misfits, an earth-shattering revelation, two births and one very weird wedding might help Anna find some answers – and change her life forever …

Smart, sassy and thoroughly absorbing Lise Hand
Irish Independent
Full Review

Her best work yet, showing Keyes as a virtuoso who can deftly mix dark and light, tragic and comic in a way that only a handful of writers can Kate Holmquist
Irish Times

An intelligently written novel that is as warmly funny as her previous books but is ultimately much more heartbreaking
Library Journal
