Coup de coeur
Coup de coeur (Fiction), by Ciaran
Choice takes the form of three distinct but interlinked novellas, each of which considers the decisions we make, in terms of, for example, the environment, our families, or morality, and the consequences, sometimes immediate, sometimes at a considerable distance, that arise from those decisions. A resolutely contemporary work of fiction, each of the three separate stories deftly weaves together striking main characters, rounded supporting casts and a fantastic sense of place, ranging from metrosexual London to rural India. Mukherjee's skill as a writer allows the disparate parts to cohere with great subtlety, while keeping the narrative as gripping as a thriller.

'Dazzling...by turns comic, lyrical and heartbreaking' Monica Ali

A publisher, who is at war with his industry and himself, embarks on a radical experiment in his own life and the lives of those connected to him; an academic exchanges one story for another after an accident brings a stranger into her life; and a family in rural India have their lives destroyed by a gift. These three ingeniously linked but distinct narratives, each of which has devastating unintended consequences, form a breathtaking exploration of freedom, responsibility, and ethics. What happens when market values replace other notions of value and meaning? How do the choices we make affect our work, our relationships, and our place in the world? Neel Mukherjee's new novel exposes the myths of individual choice, and confronts our fundamental assumptions about economics, race, appropriation, and the tangled ethics of contemporary life.

Choice is a scathing, compassionate quarrel with the world, a masterful inquiry into how we should live our lives, and how we should tell them.
