A wry and life-affirming tale-and the Irish literary star's latest "New York Times" bestseller.
Marian Keyes's inimitable blend of rollicking humor, effervescent prose, and captivating stories that deal with real-life issues have won readers around the globe. Reminiscent of the blockbuster movie "Love, Actually," her new novel "The Brightest Star in the Sky," features seven neighbors whose lives become entangled when a sassy and prescient spirit descends on 66 Star Street to radically transform at least one person's life in the Dublin town house. With the comic appeal of Nick Hornby's novels and delicious drama akin to Jane Green, "The Brightest Star in the Sky" will keep readers guessing, laughing, gasping, and in tears until the very last page.
