Roddy Doyle

Invited to the 2019 Books & Music Festival

Born in a working-class neighborhood in North Dublin, Roddy Doyle has written numerous novels, plays and screenplays.
His Barrytown trilogy was adapted for the screen by Alan Parker (The Commitments, 1991) and Stephen Frears (The Snapper, 1993 then The Van, 1996), establishing Roddy Doyle's reputation worldwide and his style: corrosive humor, a raw style based on the oral culture of working-class neighborhoods. In 1993, he won the Booker Prize for "Paddy Clarke Ha Ha Ha". He then gave up teaching to devote himself entirely to writing.
