As I Go Along:
notes from a small woman
Celebrating 21 years of Marian Keyes as an international best-selling literary superstar, Penguin published Marian's third collection of essays Making It Up As I Go Along: notes from a small woman in paperback on the 6 October.
Marian Keyes knows more than most about the dizzy highs and unexpected lows of a life that depends on making everything up. In Making It Up As I Go Along she shares her thoughts and experiences on the challenging business of being a woman in the modern world. Whether it’s how to be a makeup-obsessed feminist, who not to talk to on an Antarctic cruise, the best way to break up with your hairdresser or an honest insight into about being a writer, Marian covers it all.

A global number one bestseller, she has written 12 novels, been translated into 36 languages, and sold over 33 million copies worldwide.
