AN INSTANT NATIONAL BESTSELLER
“It will break your heart and nourish your soul…. Her finest novel yet.” —Nigella Lawson
“Beautifully written, funny, heart-breaking and always wise. A proper treat.” —Daily Mail
“A sequel worth the wait…. This garrulous, fast-paced read offers the joy of a reunion with not just Rachel, but the rambunctious Walsh clan. An entertaining, growingly poignant contemporary tale.” —Sunday Times
“Rachel herself remains flawed, gorgeous and real…. Keyes wisely resists the temptation to make Rachel a martyr, or a wise woman who has all the answers…. Like its predecessor, Again, Rachel is a complicated love letter to the human experience.” —Daisy Buchanan for iNews
“A witty and warm-hearted sequel…. Effortlessly segueing from tragedy to comedy…. A novel replete with beautifully well-rounded secondary characters…. Again, Rachel has all of Keyes’s trademark wit, humour and whip-smart dialogue, but it’s also a novel teeming with compassion and redemption.” —The Observer
“Simply superb…. [Keyes] is hands down the funniest writer in the business.” —The Irish Times
“Keyes delivers punchy home truths with wit and charm…. Keyes’s beady-eyed observations and sparky, sweary dialogue…lighten another agonisingly painful story. There is a real genius to the way Keyes brings deep, awful truths to the surface. The plotting is more skillfully turned than in Rachel’s Holiday, and Keyes’s ability to keep the balance between realism and fantasy works like a kind of fairy charm…. Keyes has mastered the art of writing books that read like treats, but turn out to be good for you.” —The Telegraph
“Assured, wise and witty with superb observational detail, the characters and dialogue are so on point that reading Marian Keyes is like being cradled in safe arms…. Keyes fans won’t be disappointed and this is destined to be as successful as its forerunner.” —Woman & Home
“Rachel’s recovery storyline…is expertly crafted, as Keyes delves into what happens when a loss is so overwhelming that your usual support systems stop providing comfort. That portrait of grief, in particular the challenge it poses to those in recovery, is rendered with great compassion and acute emotional honesty.” —Independent (Ireland)
“Again, Rachel is fabulous. Beautifully written, pure 5-star Keyes—clever, lively, funny, compelling.” —Nina Stibbe
“Funny, heartbreaking, achingly real—Keyes has done it again. Gorgeous. I absolutely loved it.” —Jane Fallon
“Wow! It’s excellent and it’s everything. Funny, gorgeous, exquisite.” —Daisy Buchanan
“Utterly brilliant, wise and funny. So fabulous. I adore it.” —Cathy Kelly
