September 2010 Books and Movies

Under the Duvet
Marian Keyes

This was pretty good. Not a story, but a collection of essays written for various Irish and English papers and some previously unpublished for variety. You really get a better sense of who Marian Keyes is as a person, especially the article about her alcoholism. I found it humorous that many of her stories ended up in her books. Since I've read almost all of them, I could identify where I'd read them, such as the free gift story appearing in Sushi For Beginners. There's another collection of essays entitled Further Under the Duvet, that I'm looking forward to reading.

My friend Amy has also posted a review on her blog.

That's it for September I'm afraid. With the move and all, I've just been too busy!
