Roddy Doyle

Guest at the 2019 Books & Music Festival

Born in a working-class area in north Dublin, Roddy Doyle has written many novels, plays and screenplays.
His Barrytown trilogy has been adapted for the cinema by Alan Parker (The Commitments, 1991) and Stephen Frears (The Snapper, 1993 then The Van, 1996), dedicating Roddy Doyle worldwide and imposing his style: corrosive humor, raw style, based on the oral culture of working-class neighborhoods. In 1993, he received the Booker Prize for "Paddy Clarke Ha Ha Ha". He then gave up teaching and devoted himself entirely to writing.
