Meet Charlie Savage.

Charlie is a middle-aged Dubliner with an indefatigable wife, an exasperated daughter, a drinking buddy who's realised that he's been a woman all along ...

Compiled here for the first time is a whole year's worth of Roddy Doyle's hilarious series for the Irish Independent. Giving a unique voice to the everyday, he draws a portrait of a man - funny, loyal, somewhat bewildered - trying to keep pace with the modern world (if his knees don't give out first).

MEDIA REVIEWS
A delight from start to finish. -- Max Davidson * Mail on Sunday *
A refreshingly positive take on middle age, it's optimistic, warm-hearted, blokishly moving and written with a master's pin-sharp command of humour... a book that's sure to be picked up and revisited time and time again. * Herald Scotland *
More than comedy or insight, this work has tenderness... It does more than tickle our bellies, it warms our hearts. -- Niamh Donnelly * Irish Times *
Brilliantly funny. Heart-warmingly, vulnerably hilarious in fact. Doyle has crafted Charlie Savage with great care and has imbued him with such depth of character that I can't imagine a reader finishing the book without loving him, just a little... savour every page because Charlie Savage will enrich your life as long as he is in it. -- Ceire Duggan * RTE Guide *
This portrait of an ordinary man (and one clearly past his best) is by turns hilarious and heartfelt. -- Rachel Lloyd * Economist, 1843 *
