Author Marian Keyes
“I only read women. I know that men write books. But their lives are so limited. It’s such a small and narrow experience,
Their literature just really can’t match anything written by a woman. I just think ‘**** off’.
I’m tired of women being treated as second-class writers.
If a man is really, really good and I can believe the glowing reviews have any basis in fact, then I will read the occasional one but not really, no, not when there’s so many fabulous women.”
Marian Keyes, promoting her new novel Grown-Ups this week
Marian Keyes says she will only read books by women from now on, as men's lives are so narrow. Okay, Marian, I trust you'll read my latest book "Am I a Feminist? Are you?" Save you from having to plod through Tolstoy, Flaubert, Joyce, Dickens, etc.!
