'Magnificently messy lives, brilliantly untangled. Funny, tender and completely absorbing!' GRAHAM NORTON

'SUCH a treat. Like reading the cleverest cream cake of words'

'Comic, convincing and true. Grown Ups has an almost Austenesque insight into character. Keyes knows how to make serious issues relatable - and get a few grownup laughs, too' GUARDIAN

'Superb. Warm-hearted, wise and highly entertaining' OBSERVER
