9780060520519: The Other Side of the Story: A Novel

Life is a circle, and what goes around, comes around. Just ask a trio of unforgettable women in Marian Keyes's enchanting new novel ...

Energetic, ambitious, and sexy, literary agent Jojo Harvey combines Jessica Rabbit's body with a mind like a steel trap. As if watching her back while on the corporate ladder and making million-dollar deals wasn't difficult enough, Jojo's having a relationship with her boss. Her married boss.

Tall, slender, and blond, bestselling author Lily Wright, one of Jojo's clients, worries about bad karma and the second novel she can't seem to write but must deliver -- she's already spent the advance. Anton, the Love of Her Life, persuaded her to buy their dream house.

Events organizer extraordinaire Gemma Hogan was best friends with Lily -- until the willowy blonde stole Anton, a.k.a. the Love of Her Life. Juggling the demands of her newly separated (and desperately needy) mom, Gemma's social life is flatlining -- a mortifying situation that makes for hilarious e-mails to a friend. Tales so funny, they come to the attention of top literary agent Jojo Harvey, who takes Gemma on as a client ...

Written in the charming and chatty voice that has become Marian Keyes's signature style, this hilarious and heartwarming new novel proves there are three sides to every story ... especially in the world of publishing!

About the Author:

Marian Keyes began writing in 1993 and is the author of seven novels: Watermelon, Lucy Sullivan Is Getting Married, Rachel's Holiday, Last Chance Saloon, Angels, Sushi for Beginners, and The Other Side of the Story. She is also the author of a book of nonfiction titled Under the Duvet. She lives in Ireland with her husband and their two imaginary dogs.

From AudioFile:

Jojo is a literary agent. Two of her clients have written novels that are poised to break records on the bestseller lists. Gemma has written a journal of her parents' broken marriage, and Lily Wright has moved to London--with Gemma's boyfriend. Terry Donnelly deserves much praise for her delivery of the action in the book, which sweeps from Ireland to London to New York. Donnelly allows no lapses of interest as the listener follows the varying story lines. She is a good reader. Marian Keyes writes a good story. Yet this novel is studded with bad grammar, which cheapens the writing. It hurts the eye when read and the ear when listened to.
