Reading and Signing
Jimmy Rabbitte, hero of Roddy Doyle's beloved novel The Commitments, returns now nearing 50, father of four, and with a recent cancer diagnosis. But his love of soul music hasn't changed, and in The Guts, he is resurrecting forgotten albums, reconnecting with his old bandmates, and rediscovering the joys of fatherhood. Fans of Doyle's humorous and poignant novels won't be disappointed.
Roddy Doyle is the author of eight novels, a collection of stories, and Rory & Ita, a memoir of his parents. He won the Booker Prize in 1993 for Paddy Clarke Ha Ha Ha. He lives and works in Dublin.
