SUSHI FOR BEGINNERS
Genre: Mainstream, Chick lit
Popular Irish chick lit author Keyes' latest novel is about three women searching for happiness. London magazine editor Lisa is shipped off to Dublin to run a new women's magazine called Colleen. She's miserable because she thought she was being promoted and moving to New York she considers Dublin just horrible.
Super-organized and boyfriendless, Ashling is hired to be the magazine's assistant editor, but she doesn't think she's well liked by the powers that be. Meanwhile, Ashling's friend Clodagh has a gorgeous husband and two young children, but she's miserable and restless.
Keyes, whose books include Angels, Last Chance Saloon, Lucy Sullivan Is Getting Married, has written a funny and readable novel that also touches upon serious issues like depression and homelessness. It's a bit slow in parts, but the last 100 pages are worth the wait! (Jun., 432 pp., 24.95)
