Marian Keyes - You're Booked

This week we are spending some time with the author who has probably been discussed on the show more than any other and one of our favourite writers of all time - the legendary Marian Keyes. Marian is one of the most successful Irish novelists of all time, selling over 30 million books in 33 different languages, with the latest being the chart-topping Grown Ups. We talked to Marian about the pleasures of reading, the joys of Jilly Cooper, why she's craving fictional glamour and struggling with Jane Austen.
