About the Author:

RODDY DOYLE was born in Dublin in 1958. He is the author of nine acclaimed novels including The Commitments, The Snapper, and The Van, two collections of short stories, Rory & Ita, a memoir about his parents, and most recently, Two Pints, a collection of dialogues.

Review:

      "Mr. Doyle has made his own the gritty world of modern Dublin." --New York Times 

    "An absurd comedy of the commonplace...a charming, truthful and immensely funny story which leaves you gasping for more." --Sunday Times on The Commitments 

    "A superb creation, exploding with cheerful chauvinism and black Celtic humour... You finish the book hungry for more." --The Times on The Snapper 

    "A wonderfully funny book, that crackles and spits like fat in the fryer. It is also very touching... fine entertainment." --Daily Telegraph on The Van 

    A new edition of the trilogy with a wonderful new jacket
