With This Charming Man, Marian Keyes hits her stride as a novelist with her best novel yet, telling the stories of four women who are shaped by one man
Paddy de Courcy is Ireland's debonair politician, the "John F. Kennedy Jr. of Dublin." His charm and charisma have taken hold of the country and the tabloids, not to mention our four heroines: Lola, Grace, Marnie, and Alicia. But though Paddy's winning smile is fooling Irish minds, the broken hearts he's left in his past offer a far more truthful look into his character.
Narrated in turn by each woman, This Charming Man explores how their love for this one man has shaped their lives. But in true Marian Keyes fashion, this is more than a story of four love affairs. It's a testament to the strength women find in themselves through work, friendship, and family, no matter what demons may be haunting their lives. Depression, self-doubt, domestic abuse—each of these women has seen tough times in life, and it's through Keyes's wonderful storytelling ability that these subjects are approached with the appropriate tone and candor. Her deft touch provides a gripping story and, ultimately, a redemptive ending.

“Keyes displays razor-sharp insight....A thoughtful book that will arouse empathy, anger, and finally satisfaction.”
—Rocky Mountain News (Denver)
This Charming Man has everything Marian Keyes fans have come to love—laughter through tears, great friendships, and flawed but lovable heroines that readers can relate to. The internationally beloved author of Last Chance Saloon, Sushi for Beginners, Anybody Out There? and her latest blockbuster, The Brightest Star in the Sky, to name just a few of her bestselling novels, Keyes now gives us a darkly enchanting fable of four women whose lives are shaped and devastated by one Irish playboy politician. “Keyes’s protagonists shine, even at their darkest,” Entertainment Weekly tells us, as This Charming Man demonstrates yet again that “Keyes juggles the serious and the comic with ease” (Miami Herald).From the Back Cover:
The lives of four very different women have been shaped—and battered—by one charming man. . . .
Ireland's debonair politician Paddy de Courcy—the "John F. Kennedy Jr. of Dublin"—has captured tabloid headlines and the imagination of his country with his charm and charisma. But the crushed hearts he's left behind him reveal more about his character than his winning, votegetting smile. Lola, Grace, Marnie, and Alicia have all suffered from his selfishness and cruelty. But with Paddy's political star ascending, the time is finally ripe for redemption . . . and perhaps a bit of revenge.
