Roddy Doyle

One of Ireland’s most popular and acclaimed voices, Dublin-born author Roddy Doyle began his career as a teacher before leaving to write full-time. His first novels, The Commitments, The Snapper, and The Van  – collectively known as the Barrytown Trilogy – were adapted for screen both as films and for the Channel 4 series The Family. In 1994, Doyle won the Booker Prize for fiction for his novel Paddy Clarke, Ha Ha Ha, the colourful story of a ten-year-old boy growing up in north Dublin.

His other works include the novels The Woman Who Walked Into Doors, The Dead Republic, Two Pints, The Guts, Two More Pints, Dead Man Talking, Smile and Charlie Savage. His children's books include The Giggler Treatment, Rover Saves Christmas and A Greyhound of a Girl which was shortlisted for the Carnegie Medal in 2013.

Collecting together a year’s worth of his popular columns from the Irish Independent, Charlie Savage presents Roddy Doyle’s irascible creation in all his blundering glory. Encountering everything from Twitter to transsexuality with the same air of bewilderment, Charlie attempts to make sense of a world that seems, suddenly, to have left him behind. A gently funny view of the world through the eyes of an archetypal middle-aged Dubliner, best consumed with a pint at your elbow.
