Product description

Review

Comic, convincing and true. Grown Ups has an almost Austenesque insight into character. Keyes knows how to make serious issues relatable - and get a few grownup laughs, too, Guardian

Messy, tangled complex humans who reminded me that few of us ever really sort out our lives at all, Jojo Moyes

Magnificently messy lives, brilliantly untangled. Funny, tender and completely absorbing!, Graham Norton

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

I LOVED Grown Ups so much. It's SUCH a treat. I felt like I was rolling in PURE JOY throughout. The cleverest cream cake of words, Caitlin Moran

You may have written the best book of your career, Chris Evans, Virgin Radio

Funny and moving, with an acute eye for family foibles, Ian Rankin, bestselling author of the John Rebus thrillers

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

Marian Keyes shows superb skill at tackling tough themes in this tale of a clan with secrets. Grown Ups is a warm-hearted, wise and highly entertaining portrayal of how families behave; and of the love and tolerance required to sustain our closest relationships, Hannah Beckerman, Observer

A novel that is warm and witty but never afraid to tackle the big stuff, Elizabeth Day, Mail on Sunday

Book Description

The new classic from the queen of contemporary fiction.
