Product description

Review

Casey's observations of posh New York life are as hilarious as her descriptions of Ireland are poetic, and the central character is wonderful. Liddy is clever, honest, hardworking and well-meaning and you'll root for her like mad. We leave her in Ireland. I hope there'll be a sequel. (Daily Mail)

Zippy, smart, well-written ... it manages to be both delicious escapism and refreshingly real. (Sunday Times Ireland)

Energetic and immensely readable...an engaging take on the balancing act of the modern woman...sure to resonate with readers who like no-nonsense, mature heroines with a bit of bite and a good deal of self-deprecating humour. (Irish Independent)

Casey can be very funny, but also makes serious points about modern womanhood. Delicious. (Saga Magazine)

An extremely funny, mischievous tale. (Sunday Independent (Ireland))

The Real Liddy James is a lively, stimulating piece of fiction, of a kind that revels in the intricacies of small-scale domestic drama. What was good enough for Jane Austen and the Brontes 200 years ago is celebrated here in its contemporary context today. (Sunday Business Post)

The language is smart and funny, and the observations are wry. Liddy will resonate for readers who love strong, mature women with a bit of Irish fire, as with fans of Cecelia Ahern and Marian Keyes and Maria Semple's Where'd You Go, Bernadette. (Booklist)

Wonderfully funny, brilliantly observed, and completely addictive! (Rosamund Lupton, author of Sister and The Quality of Silence)

Original, sharp, funny and timely, The Real Liddy James is a spectacular novel from Anne-Marie Casey who understands the high wire act every working mother attempts in the circus of life . . . A dazzling gem. (Adriana Trigiani bestselling author of All the Stars in the Heavens)

Breakneck and bursting at the seams with all of modern life's great questions and challenges, The Real Liddy James made me wish my chair had a seatbelt. Anne-Marie Casey has a way of skewering city life with her acute observations. (Alison Jean Lester, author of Lillian on Life)

A charming and insightful study of one fabulous, forty-something woman. (Jules Moulin, author of Ally Hughes Has Sex Sometimes)

Immensely readable, fast-paced, and full of Casey's charming yet acerbic wit, the book is thoroughly engaging all the way through. (Jennifer Kaufman and Karen Mack, bestselling authors of Freud's Mistress)

An entertaining twist on the "having it all" genre, Casey's novel addresses all the complexities of modern existence - from "blended" families to older pregnancies and the economic consequences of divorce - in a style that is both fresh and funny. (Irish Times)

Whip-smart and crackling with energy, The Real Liddy James had me stopping nearly every page to read paragraphs out loud to anyone who would listen. A true delight! (Elin Hilderbrand, author of The Rumour)

[The Real Liddy James] is an energetic novel; Liddy's self-deprecating humor makes for chuckles in even the toughest situations. And while Liddy is clearly the protagonist, other characters have interesting triumphs and tribulations as well. Liddy is a memorable character who could easily appear again as The New and Improved Liddy James in Casey's next novel. Let's hope so. (Kirkus)

Rife with drama both in and out of the courtroom, infidelity, and more, [THE REAL LIDDY JAMES] is perfect for fans of women's fiction with a dose of travel and a strong-and sometimes flailing-female lead. (Library Journal)

Book Description

Fans of Helen Fielding's Bridget Jones or Maria Semple's Where'd You Go, Bernadette? will love this hilarious novel about the lives and loves of a far-from-perfect modern superwoman...
