Sushi for Beginners

book | Fiction | 2000
UK → Penguin

A nervous breakdown seems like a great idea: all that lying in bed and watching daytime TV. But who's going to have it?

Will it be housewife Clodagh, who spends her days microwaving pasta for her demanding toddlers and waiting for her beautiful husband Dylan to come home? Or Lisa, hard, brittle and shiny as an M&M, reeling from the shock of a demotion from her fabulous job in London to a one-horse magazine in Dublin? Or Ashling, so normal she's weird?

Reviews

Reconciles sassiness and humour with revealing glimpses of life's underbelly... Marian Keyes' dialogue sparkles but her characters are her greatest strength Martina Devlin
Irish Independent
Full Review

This heart-warming Irish stew of a love story, seasoned with sympathy and plenty of comic charm, is a must for Keyes fans. Wendy Holden
Mail on Sunday
Full Review

Keyes gives popular fiction a good name, no easy feat in a field dominated by overpaid imitators and charlatans. Lesley McDowell
