Bestselling author Marian Keyes has delighted readers with the lives, loves, and foibles of the irrepressible Walsh sisters and their eccentric mammy. In this Life in the Big Apple is perfect for Anna. She has the best job in the world, a lovely apartment, and great friends. Then one morning, she wakes up in her mammy's house in Dublin with stitches in her face, a dislocated knee, hands smashed up, and no memory at all of what happened. As soon as she's able, Anna's flying back to Manhattan, mystified but determined to find out how her life turned upside down. As her past slowly begins coming back to her, she sets out on an outrageous quest--involving lilies, psychics, mediums, and anyone who can point her in the right direction.

Marrying life's darker bits with wild humor and tender wit, Anybody Out There? is a strange and wonderfully charming look at love here and ever after.

Keyes is such a great storyteller. This book was humorous, I loved the characters, got sucked in and couldn't put it down.

A friend recommended this author as being light and amusing. It was ... dealing with a tough subject but with many laugh-out-loud moments. Enjoyed ... looking forward to reading more from this author!

Loved it! Marian Keyes books are NOT the usual chick-lit offerings, they're so much deeper, so well written, and always engaging. This is definitely my favourite by this wonderful author.

This book was amazing, and had the power to bring you to tears and laugh out loud at the same time. It was very moving, and I highly recommend it.

This is an excellent book. The characters are very real, quirky and fun. The book has some really good twists - and feels very real.
