Marian Keyes, Irish author and reigning queen of Chick lit, uses humor and sharp prose in This Charming Man to address the issues of modern womanhood. While her writing style may appear light and humorous on the surface, she covers serious topics including alcoholism and domestic violence. Up-and-coming Dublin politician Paddy de Courcy has charmed many, but his true nature is revealed via the broken hearts he's left behind. Told in alternating viewpoints by four women (Lola, Grace, Marnie, and Alicia), This Charming Man features one of the more unique romantic relationships the Chick lit genre has recently offered up.
