''Classic Marian Keyes: a blizzard of wit and wisecracks. Mercilessly funny'' The Times

Amy''s husband Hugh has run away to ''find himself''. But will he ever come back?

''Myself and Hugh . . . We''re taking a break.''
''A city-with-fancy-food sort of break?'' If only.

Amy''s husband Hugh says he isn''t leaving her. He still loves her, he''s just taking a break - from their marriage, their children and, most of all, from their life together. Six months to lose himself in South East Asia. And there is nothing Amy can say or do about it. Yes, it''s a mid-life crisis, but let''s be clear: a break isn''t a break up - yet . . .

However, for Amy it''s enough to send her - along with her extended family of gossips, misfits and troublemakers - teetering over the edge. For a lot can happen in six-months. When Hugh returns, if he returns, will he be the same man she married? Will Amy be the same woman? Because if Hugh is on a break from their marriage, then so is she . . .

The Break is a story about the choices we make and how those choices help to make us. It is Marian Keyes at her funniest, wisest and brilliant best.
