9780141036229: Open-handed

The place is Dublin. The time is the present. Five characters - two Irish, three from eastern Europe, all seeking success from wildly different starting points - become entangled with one another in a web of politics, property, sex and violence. Chris Binchy's novel is a beautifully observed portrait of a place and a time, and a thrillingly paced story of an unforgettable group of characters brought together by circumstance, ambition and need.

Review:

'The best novel of the Celtic Tiger yet published' Joseph O'Connor 'Finely paced, expertly plotted and astutely observed' - Dermot Bolger, Sunday Independent 'A tremendously well-written book ! wide-ranging, complex, profound and very satisfying' Irish Independent 'A rattling tale of culture clash and frenzied capitalism. Binchy nails modern Dublin as a night-town of violence, sex and criminality, where the streets are paved with broken dreams and teeth.' RTE Guide 'Brilliantly illuminating ! about identity, about home, about morality. Most of all, though, Open-handed is a good read.' Irish Times
