The Woman Who Stole My Life, chosen by Lucia Rae of Curtis Brown
“My perfect Christmas book which would appeal just as much to men as well as women is the truly extraordinary new novel from Marian Keyes, The Woman Who Stole My Life. Glorious and life-affirming, Marian’s novel is about losing the life you had and finding a better one. One day, sitting in traffic, married Dublin mum Stella Sweeney attempts a good deed. The resulting car crash changes her life.
For she meets a man who wants her telephone number (for the insurance, it turns out). That’s okay. She doesn’t really like him much anyway (his Range Rover totally banjaxed her car). But in this meeting is born the seed of something which will take Stella thousands of miles from her old life, turning an ordinary woman into a superstar, and, along the way, wrenching her whole family apart.
The writing is all-enveloping in its warmth (just like your favourite Christmas jumper!) and the brilliant humour is just the thing to get you through the festive period.”
