This work tells a hilarious and bitter-sweet tale of baby-blues and fruitless men. The original Marian Keyes novel is back! A t twenty-nine, fun-loving, good-natured Claire has everything she ever wanted: a husband she adores, a great apartment, a good job. Then, on the day she gives birth to her first baby. James visits her in the recovery room to inform her that he's leaving her. Claire is left with a beautiful newborn daughter, a broken heart, and a body that she can hardly bear to look at in the mirror. So, in the absence of any better offers, Claire decides to go home to her family in Dublin. To her gorgeous man-eating sister Helen, her soap-watching mother, her bewildered father. And there, sheltered by the love of an (albeit quirky) family, she gets better - a lot better. In fact, so much better that when James slithers back into her life, he's in for a bit of a surprise. "A grand first novel by Irish writer Keyes is a hilarious treatise on love's roller coaster. A candid, irresistibly funny debut and perfect summertime read." - "Kirkus Reviews". "Bitter-sweet comedy." - "Express". "Marian Keyes has a talent for writing about ordinary things happening to ordinary people. But in "Watermelon", the skill with which she weaves this tangled web is extraordinary." - "Star". "Reading a new novel by Marian Keyes is like sitting at the kitchen table with your nicest, most confiding friend" - "Daily Mail".
