This week is all about the incredible Marian Keyes, a national treasure and one of our most talented writers. Again, Rachel has stormed into the No 1 slot in the overall chart, with Rachel’s Holiday, the 25th anniversary edition, hot on its heels.

Originally published in 1988, Rachel’s Holiday sold well over a million copies. In it we meet Rachel Walsh for the first time. She has a pair of size 8 feet and such a fondness for recreational drugs that her family has forked out the cash for a spell in Cloisters – Dublin’s answer to the Betty Ford Clinic. She’s only agreed to her incarceration because she’s heard that rehab is wall-to-wall jacuzzis, gymnasiums and rock stars going tepid turkey – and it’s about time she had a holiday.

But what Rachel doesn’t count on are the toe-curling embarrassments heaped on her by family and group therapy, the lack of sex, drugs and rock’n’roll – and missing Luke, her ex. What kind of a new start in life is this?

In Again, Rachel Rachel’s finally got herself on track – but life never stops being messy. And when an old flame resurfaces, will she go back to who she once was? Or at fifty, can she find herself all over again?
