eBook News: Mammy Walsh's A-Z of the Walsh Family by Marian Keyes

Marian Keyes' new book The Mystery of Mercy Close isn't due out until the end of the next month, but in the mean time, she has a brand new eBook short story to keep you going... Mammy Walsh's A-Z of the Walsh Family! It sounds like a great book to reintroduce us all to the Walsh family as it's been a while, and I'll definitely be taking a look at it!

"For all fans eagerly awaiting Marian Keyes' new novel The Mystery of Mercy Close - featuring Helen Walsh and out in September - here is a laugh-out-loud ebook-only short guide to everyone's favourite dysfunctional Irish family, Mammy Walsh's A-Z of the Walshes.

It does exactly what it says on the tin but here's a brief word from its author, Mammy Walsh herself:

'There's this woman I know from bridge, Mona Hopkins, a lovely woman she is, even if I must admit I'm not that keen on her myself, and she said a great thing the other day. I was expecting her to say "Two no trumps," but instead she comes out with a saying about her children. She says, "Boys wreck your house and girls wreck your head." Isn't that a marvellous bit of wisdom - "Boys wreck your house and girls wreck your head!" And God knows it's the truest thing I've heard in a long time. I should know. I have five girls. Five daughters. And let me tell you, my head is wrecked from them.

Although, now that I think of it, so is my house . . .'

It's the perfect re-introduction to the Walsh family and Marian's new novel, The Mystery of Mercy Close."
