Smile

Author:

Roddy Doyle

Synopsis:

Just moved into a new apartment, alone for the first time in years, Victor Forde goes every evening to Donnelly's pub for a pint. One evening a man in shorts and a pink shirt brings over his own pint and sits down. He seems to know Victor's name and to remember him from school. Says his name is Fitzpatrick. Victor dislikes him on sight; dislikes the memories that Fitzpatrick stirs up of five years being taught by the Christian Brothers. He prompts other recollections too - of Rachel, his beautiful wife who became a celebrity, and of Victor's small claim to fame as the man who says the unsayable on the radio. But it's the memories of school, and of one particular Brother, that he cannot control, and which eventually threaten to destroy his sanity...

Jimmy Rabbitte is back. The man who invented The Commitments back in the eighties is now 47, with a loving wife, four kids and bowel cancer. He isn't dying, he thinks, but he might be. Jimmy still loves his music, and still loves to hustle - his new thing is finding old bands and then finding the people who loved them enough to pay money for their resurrected albums. On his path through Dublin he meets two of The Commitments - Outspan, whose illness is probably terminal, and Imelda Quirk, still as gorgeous as ever. He is reunited with his long-lost brother and learns to play the trumpet...

Harry and Madeleine Winslow are a devoted couple, blessed with talent, money and charm. Bonded by deep devotion, their marriage is both envied and admired by friends who spend summers at their East Hampton idyll. When a holiday fling goes disastrously wrong, 26-year-old Claire falls into the Winslows' welcome orbit. They are enchanted by her youth, intelligence and disarming naivety.

Seen through the eyes of Maddy's childhood friend Walter, INDISCRETION is a story about the complexities of love, and how obsession can tear apart even the most perfect of worlds.

Bond Girl

Author:

Erin Duffy

Synopsis:

Being the new girl in one of New York's biggest banks isn't what Alex Garrett expected. For one thing, she gets a fold-up chair and no desk - apparently some people don't last long enough to need their own chair... For another, her colleagues aren't quite the geeks she feared. In fact, pretty soon she's having the time of her life. Sure, it's not ideal when you lose thousands of dollars on your first trade, and no she hadn't really expected to be sent for car-loads of pizzas for breakfast - without a car... But she soon realises that the crazy, shocking, hilarious group of men that surround her could be the best friends she ever had, and one of them may become even more.
