Join us at The Greek Club where ABC's Books & Arts presenter Sarah Kanowski will be in-conversation with Marian Keyes discussing her new novel, The Break

A hilarious and insightful tale about a runaway husband from the internationally bestselling writer of smart, funny fiction.

At 44 Amy O'Connell thinks she's seen, heard or done it all. Until her husband Hugh announces he needs a break - from her. He is going backpacking for six months round Asia where he can do what he wants - and this is the scary bit - with anyone he wants.

'WTAF?' thinks Amy. What's she to do? Stay loyal to disloyal Hugh? Allow her ex-husband back into her life? Run away herself? And what about the children? A lot can happen in six months, will Hugh return as the same man? And will she still be the same woman there waiting for him?

“One of the most reliably brilliant novelists writing with humour and insight about women’s lives, I think Keyes gets better and better.” Alice O’Keeffe, The Bookseller’s Fiction preview of The Break

“Gloriously funny” The Sunday Times

“A total triumph” The Daily Mail

Marian Keyes studied law and accountancy before turning to writing. Her first novel Watermelon was published in Ireland in 1995, where it was an immediate, runaway success. Marian Keyes is now one of the most successful Irish novelists of all time and is published in thirty nine different languages. Marian's other international bestselling titles include Lucy Sullivan is Getting Married, Rachel's Holiday, Last Chance Saloon, Sushi for Beginners, Angels, The Other Side of the Story and Anybody Out There. She also has two collections of journalism, Under the Duvet and Further Under the Duvet.
