NATIONAL AND INTERNATIONAL BESTSELLER
NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER
SHORTLISTED FOR THE 2020 AN POST IRISH BOOK AWARD FOR POPULAR FICTION

I loved every word of Grown Ups. I will be missing those gorgeous vibrant characters for many weeks to come. There should be a word to describe the sadness and satisfaction you feel when you read the last page of a Marian Keyes novel: the ending is perfect but you still want more, more, more. --Liane Moriarty, bestselling author of Big Little Lies

Messy, tangled, complex humans who reminded me that few of us ever really sort out our lives at all. --Jojo Moyes, bestselling author of Me Before You

Sensitive, funny, wonderful, immensely touching. --Nigella Lawson

I LOVED Grown Ups so much. It's SUCH a treat. I felt like I was rolling in PURE JOY throughout. --Caitlin Moran, bestselling author of How to Build a Girl

She's only gone and done it again! I love Marian Keyes's books with a passion, and now she's got a fabulous new one on the way! Brilliant as ever. --Jane Fallon, bestselling author of Tell Me a Secret

This beauty of a book just took the crown as my new favourite Marian Keyes novel (and that is a HIGH bar). It's tender, hilarious, important, with characters who feel as real as your own family by the time you're done. I put it down and felt bereft. --Beth O'Leary, bestselling author of The Flatshare

It is charming, funny and poignant. But also profound, heartbreaking. If you already love Marian, this is her best yet. If you haven't read her, this is the one. --Nina Stibbe, bestselling author of Reasons to Be Cheerful

THIS BOOK. Reader, I LOVED it. Funny and thoughtful, and such brilliantly drawn characters I am genuinely bereft that my time with them is over. --Hannah Beckerman, bestselling author of If Only I Could Tell You

A novel that is warm and witty, but never afraid to tackle the big stuff. --Elizabeth Day, bestselling author of How to Fail

Marian Keyes's gift for storytelling is utterly magnificent. I feel like I've met every single character in this book. I may even be a character in this book. Nobody nails chaotic families like Marian. --Liz Nugent, bestselling author of Unravelling Oliver

Over the past 20 years, Marian Keyes has built a reputation for breezy fiction that also tackles difficult and, at times, controversial subjects, and Grown Ups is no exception. . . . Keyes's literary skill lies in taking themes that in different hands might be rendered portentous or oppressive and making them accessible. Grown Ups is a warm-hearted, wise and highly entertaining portrayal of how families behave; of our tendency to idealise the notion of extended family gatherings, and of the love and tolerance required to sustain our closest relationships. --The Guardian

Beautifully drawing an extended family that's beset by rubbish parents (each of the brothers struggles with the legacy of their critical mum and dad), complex behaviours (overspending, cheating, bulimia) and the natural disorder that comes with being each other's nearest and dearest, this is Keyes at her best: capturing everyday voices with humour and empathy with writing that you'll devour in a weekend. Just pure and simple joy. --Stylist

Praise for the books of Marian Keyes:

Keyes is the real thing. --The Globe and Mail

Mercilessly funny. --The Times (UK)

Clever, hilarious, poignant. . . . Gloriously funny. --Sunday Times

Wildly funny, romantic and nearly impossible to put down. --Daily Mail

Everything this woman touches turns to comic gold. --Cosmopolitan

Full of brilliantly funny characters, genuine emotion and heaps of charm. --Heat

Keyes is an international treasure. The ultimate choice for a binge read. --Stylist

When it comes to writing page-turners that put a smile on your face and make you think, Keyes is in a class of her own. --Daily Express

Fabulously entertaining. The queen of intelligent women's fiction. --Sunday Mirror

Full of darkness and light, this is Keyes at her classic and most brilliant best. --Red

Keyes writes about women who are absolutely themselves, even when society tries to insist they are something else. --Irish Times

Glorious, life-affirming. --Woman & Home

Keyes writes extremely well about modern women. Candid and deeply felt. --Metro

5.0 out of 5 stars My dog had to find someone else to play with! I lost a couple of days...
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 9 February 2020
Oh bliss, I won’t say anything about the story content as lots of people have done that already, but I will say the book is such an absolute 5* joy! It gave a lot of food for thought, a lot of smiles, a few tears, ....I was sad to finish the book but I’m sure I’ll read it again at some point. I’ve read all of MK’s books, enjoyed them all, but this was probably my favourite to date. I subscribe to her newsletter as she just makes me laugh, and she obviously puts her soul into her books, not easy. I do agree that it was a bit challenging to take on board all the characters, but just read the first bit twice then you’ll be fine, and it’s so worth it. Thank you, it was just fantastic.
